    That ring is great Dennis. Am probs being really dim here, but why would tapping it on a triblet shatter it?

    Silver solder is strongest in very thin films. If used to fill gaps it weakens or simply cracks up when bashed.

    I had the same problem with this bracelet design below Lauren, because I found it impossible to fit the segments together accurately enough. In this case the joints gave way in use, first one and then another, until it ended up as scrap.
