I've never been comfortable soldering, but this week I knew I had to solder some rings for the Cluster necklaces. I only fried 3 and after awhile, I got pretty slick at it.
Circle the ring 3 times SLOWLY with the flame, then focus the heat on the tiny ball of solder. After the solder flows quickly turn the ring over with tweezer and draw the solder through the seam with focused heat. TaDa!
Then I used a file to clean up the excess solder. When I started using less solder, the clean up was easier.
A nice tumble in the polisher, and 200 more to go...
