Saw Piercing and Sweat Soldering | Term Four, 2019

Sweat soldering is joining two pieces of metal together with solder.
You saw (piercing) out a design in a metal plate and apply solder all over. Heat up and make the solder flow, then join this onto another sheet of metal. It could be a different alloy, and thereby give you two different colours.
It works well with pendants, rings and bracelets.
New students will be introduced to basic jewellery making.
Suitable for all levels.
