Well, we couldn't resist a few bribes to get you practicing...

Good bag contents

Tips and tricks, you didn't know, you didn't know!

Our online classes are ram packed full of em

How to use a solder pick - it's a video, click the bottom left to watch!


Marriage of metal rings

Place small solder balls on the inside of the ring band, and heat from below to pull the solder into the join. This helps to avoid having excess clean up to do on the outside of the ring band.


Hoop Earrings

When soldering smaller parts to larger components, heat the metal proportionately. When soldering studs to a large hoop such as this, the flame is focused on the stud for less than a second.

These images aren’t from our class videos, they’re from the 40 to 80 page full-colour instructional guides that go along with every class.  Our classes are created to ensure no matter how you learn best, we’ve got you covered!

How to use a bezel block - it's a video, click the bottom left to watch!

This one’s just a short excerpt from our online class – which comes with complete instructions on how to use these amazing tools – including for fancy shaped bezels!

Soldering rpongs

Prong settings

Creating U-shaped prongs which hold themselves in place for soldering can make prong setting a lot simpler.  And soldering these from the back of the setting ensures the minimum amount of clean up after soldering is required.  As always though, this isn’t the only way to solder prongs in place, and we’ve got you covered with a variety of techniques over at the Metalsmith Academy.

Needle burnishers

Needle Burnishers

We go into tonnes of detail on flush setting in our online class, however one thing that a lot of students struggle with is due to the fact they’re using a needle burnisher that is too large – seriously, size matters!  Of course, needle burnishers aren’t the only way to flush set stones – and we’ll show you a variety of methods over at the Metalsmith Academy.

Seriously, we’re obsessed with tips and tricks!!  And there’s plenty more where these came from.
