    I probably learnt about yellow ochre from my American jewellery books. It's basically dirt so stops your solder flowing. I did my rectangle bezel according to John Cogswell who says that to score one...

    Thanks Dennis, I shall be trying to factor this in to how i work from now on. I like to solder lots of bits onto my rings but the downside is lots of reheating.
