A tiny quantity of this is all you need for torch soldering bezels and jump rings! I use this to solder jump rings and bezels made from the #110 copper wire that I also sell. Please note that I do not claim for this material to be a "color match." Depending upon how you use it, it may or may not match your copper. For example, after filing and/or sanding a soldered joint this solder will look grey. But do not despair! Simply heat it back up with your torch until you see a color change. The heat from the flame will bring the copper back up to the surface to give you the copper color. If you are just starting out, practice is the key!

(The second picture shows a sample pure copper chain I made using this brazing wire and 18 gauge #110 bare copper wire. I have even used this solder and the 24ga copper strip I offer to make some really funky belt buckles for my son's steampunk costume! I will try to show you guys a picture soon).

Cut with medium to heavy wire cutters or preferably with solder cutting pliers (your best flush cutting pliers are not recommended). Soldering your own metal pieces is fun! Cut into tiny pieces using your wire cutters inside a plastic bag to keep the pieces from flying around the room. Use safety glasses to protect your eyes from flying pieces of solder! Do not cut solder in the presence of children or others without eye protection. Avoid creating and breathing metal dust and fumes in an non-ventilated space. Always have a carbon monoxide detector in the room with you! Have fun and be safe creating what you imagine.

Use caution when opening the roll to prevent the ends of the coil from springing into face and eyes.

**Please note: This is for use with proper equipment, namely a torch. I use this with a micro butane torch that can achieve a pinpoint flame hot enough to melt the solder along with a proper substrate, such as a charcoal block or fire brick. Your choice of fuel can and does matter and I have found that inexpensive butane will produce an inferior flame. Therefore, I am not responsible for your individual results as I have no control over your expertise or your choice of tools and equipment. I can offer some help if you need it, but I am not able to provide in-depth training in the use of this material. When, and if, video tutorials are available, a link will be provided in this listing. Used solder is not refundable under any circumstances. I no longer accept returns once this solder is cut or used.

Yes! Every item in stock should have an International shipping option. There may be an additional per-item charge for items that are bulky and/or heavy. Shipping fees increase drastically over 8 ounces. If you are inadvertently charged too much shipping, a refund of shipping overages will be processed when your box is packed and shipped. All international shipping service is via the United States Postal Service's First Class International. Please contact shop owner if a different carrier is desired. No guarantees are made that another carrier can be obtained for the same prices advertised in the listings. Other carriers may charge higher rates.
Ordinarily, yes, I can do that for you, but I cannot guarantee that the change will take place. There are times when my shop is exceptionally busy and address change requests can sometimes be missed in the hustle and bustle of daily business. Please make every effort on your end to ensure that your address is correct before submitting an order. If a change is requested after the order is submitted, I will not be held liable for any losses incurred due to a wrong delivery address regardless of whether I have agreed in a convo to try to change the address. The bottom line is that changes are a courtesy, not a guarantee. Thank you for your diligence.
A change in Etsy policies has required sellers who want to maintain a viable business on this platform to offer free shipping either on every product or on a purchase of $35 or more. Of course, shipping is not free to shop owners, and when product returns are made, your refund may be subject to a restocking fee equal to the shipping cost that you received as part of the free shipping promotion. These measures are one way that this shop can maintain very competitive prices for everyone, both newcomers to this shop and many loyal customers. The restocking fee is assessed out of the refund due on a case-by-case basis and is not to exceed the actual cost of shipping & handling of your original shipment. Postage on returns is not refunded.
No. This shop does not provide a full refund unless the item returned is in original condition and is perfectly re-sellable. We have had customers purchase bulk packs of item, keep most of them, send back a few and then expect a full refund. We will not honor these requests.

If an item is defective or if you do not like something that you purchased from us, you must make contact within 14 days of delivery and subsequently return ALL of the product as instructed in our communication within 30 days. Tracking your package is highly recommended. Refunds will not be processed until the item(s) are received and checked for content. Please see the information above pertaining to a possible restocking fee and refunds of shipping fees.
