Soldering in silver: silver wire

To learn how to solder in silver, we will start working with silver wire. You learn how to shape and bend the different links. You learn to prepare all your silver pieces in a correct way (anneal, make a perfect fitting form and clean with acid). When this is done we can start soldering. You will learn two different methods of soldering: with the soldering squirt and with plate solder.

 

In this course you decide yourself what kind of jewelry you want to make. You can make a necklace, a pendant, brooch or a couple of earrings. The principle of soldering stays the same. At the end of the course we will look at the different ways of finishing the jewel.
