Fusing Jump Rings
by Judy Larson
Making closed jump rings is much simpler when you don't have to use solder! Try Argentium silver, for easy fusing.
Instructions
When making closed jump rings, choose Argentium wire to make jump rings because it fuses beautifully. No worries later about remembering what level of solder was used, AND the rings will not end up soldering together or to something else if too much heat is used when using them in a design.
Fusing Interconnecting rings for mobius spaces is also a breeze. However, it can sometimes be difficult to get the rings to lay nicely. Push the tip of a pencil that no longer has lead in it into the rings on a soldering surface. This should even out the rings. If the center of the rings is larger than the pencil will work on, dapping punches work equally well. Once satisfied with the positioning of the rings, fuse away!
