Jeff Fulkerson | Copper Overlay Cuff | Sunday, February 10, 2019 | 9 am until 4 pm


This is a great project to learn how to solder copper.  While soldering copper is similar to soldering silver, it’s a little harder because copper is a ‘dirty’ metal, which means when you hit it with  the torch, it oxidizes very quickly and unless you protect your solder joint from that oxidation, you won’t be able to get your solder to flow, or you’ll have an incomplete joint.

Students Will Learn:  How to solder copper, sweat soldering, plating copper to cover silver solder joints, choosing and setting a cabochon, and forming a cuff. Students will also learn proper use of the jeweler’s saw as well as some tips to make your life easier!
