    I always use yellow gold solder on rose gold these days as the rose gold solders come up yellow anyway.

    You're welcome.
    It is to prolong the life of the crucible, also leave it out to cool in a safe place rather than leaving it to cool in the kiln for the same reason.
    Be sure to check it regularly...

    No but you know you need to heat the crucible before adding the metal?

    I always solder, lobster clasps are fine if you stick a bit of techno-flux on them and use easy solder.
