Quick Tip

I've been working on another charm necklace, and came across a problem with soldering prongs onto the setting for a stone. So, after scrapping the first setting, I turned to some books for inspiration. Carles Codina is a master metalsmith, as well as one of my favorite authors for technical books, and it was in his book "Goldsmithing & Silver Work" that I found a solution to my problem! I hope this helps any other metalsmiths out there who have battled with soldering wire onto pieces.
