The fifth book, Silver Soldering Simplified was published by Potter Craft in September 2013. This 160-page book utilizes simplified soldering techniques and innovative jewelry designs to create a variety of geometric shapes from securely soldered jump ring frames, many of which are then embellished with fine wire woven gemstone bead patterns. The introductory chapter details all the tools and materials needed, essential techniques to make jump rings, chain patterns, and several findings, concluding with common soldering technique problems and solutions for remedy. We will then practice hand wrapping thin 24-gauge wire lengths into 16-gauge large-diameter soldered frames for the Peace Symbol design series. Next, we will test our soldering skills to create the dimensional Globe frame designs. The book’s projects will increase in complexity by spiraling and soldering a 3-ring, 4-ring, and 6-ring Propeller design. The next level utilizes thinner 19-gauge wire to create the 6-ring and 12-ring Dharma designs and illustrates a wire-wrapped ‘reef knot’ parachute cord technique. This book concludes by twisting a soldered oval into a Figure Eight frame between two mandrels, to be embellished with beads, and finally wrapped side-by-side into a stunning bracelet.

Real Customer Testimonials:

Excellent explanations that anyone can understands. I bought this book specifically for a friend of mine who is excellent in silversmithing. She fell in love with some of the patterns, and I fell in love with some others. Not too many are left out. There are also excellent explanations or tips you may have forgotten if you solder silver. - Roselyn Gerszewski
