I wonder if anyone can help me.
I am very new to soldering and would like to attach a jump rings to convert victorian silver paste brooches (one marked 925 & another 900) into pendants.
I have tried to attach both silver and gold findings on one and have failed ending up darkening the stones.
I am using easy silver solder , borax and butane torch. Would solder paste be an easier option?
Does anyone have any experience in this and can advise best way to to attach jump ring while protecting the paste gems & patina would be a great help.
Thank you!
