Another soldering question

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 12, 2014, 12:10 PM
Hey there, another soldering question. Since all I really need to solder at the moment is the tiny links at the back of bought chains, do any of you know if I could use the lowest temperature jewelry solder with one of those little electric soldering tools they use for electronics and pyrography?

You're welcome. It's really amazing how you get such a flowy feel out of the pyrography, it seems like something that'd be so angular to work with.

Thanks for the llama too! :D
Thank you, I try and work with wood that is nice and soft with little grain.. It definitely helps! :) I think the most important thing with pyrography is just good old fashioned practice.. Getting used to the tool and different techniques is so important..
I absolutely adore your hand made jewellery! It's something I've always wanted to have a go at.. Do you have any advice? :)

Oh gosh, I'm so still learning. Take a look at the tutorials on here, innerdiameter has a good one, I've got a tree one, and see if something appeals. And start with the softest wire you can find :) I started with half hard and don't do it! If you start getting into it, then splurge on the good tools, they're worth it.
