Frequently Asked Questions

The right flow temperature for your solder wire depends on the specific requirements of your jewellery piece.

For tasks requiring delicate bonding without affecting surrounding elements, an easy or extra easy solder is ideal. Medium solder is best for general-purpose joins, and hard or extra hard solder is perfect for joints that form the base of your piece or are subject to high temperatures during further assembly stages.

Solder wire is specifically designed to join metal components together. It is typically composed of a metal alloy that has a lower melting point than the pieces being joined. For instance, solder wire is used to seamlessly connect segments of a jewellery piece without melting the jewellery's base elements. These solders come in different flow temperatures like easy, medium, and hard, allowing jewellers to choose the appropriate melting point for their project to ensure a secure bond without compromising the integrity of the design.

On the other hand, round wire is a foundational jewellery component used to create structures, shapes, and decorative elements. It is not meant to melt; rather, it retains its form, providing strength and versatility to jewellery creations. Round wire is manipulated through bending, wrapping, and coiling to form various jewellery parts such as links, clasps, and earring hooks, and can even be used to set stones or create intricate wire-wrapped designs.

Using solder wire effectively is a cornerstone skill in jewellery making. To ensure a strong and clean join, follow these steps:

  1. Clean the Area: Begin by cleaning the areas you wish to join. The metal surfaces should be free of any oils, dirt, or oxidation. A well-prepared surface ensures better adhesion and a cleaner solder flow.
  2. Cut the Solder: Depending on the size of the joint, cut a small piece of solder wire.
  3. Flux Application: Apply flux to both the solder and the area to be joined. The flux prevents oxidation and facilitates the flow of the solder.
  4. Position the Solder: Place the cut piece of solder wire on the join. If necessary, you can hold it in place with tweezers or a soldering pick.
  5. Heat the Piece: Using a jeweller's torch, evenly heat the piece to be soldered. The goal is to bring the metal to the solder's flow temperature, not just the solder itself.
  6. Cleaning after Soldering: Once the solder flows and the joint cools, pickle the piece to clean off any residual flux and oxidation.
