Silver nuggets!

Thats next!
I heat the silver scrap in the mold with my brazing torch to the melting point.




The charcoal is saving the generated heat very well!

At this point it is possible to shape the little liquid pure silver ball for seconds.....

After solidification the structure of the charcoal is visible on the back.


Beautybath in alum, after soldering silver jump rings onto the nuggets.

....to be continued.....

  4. My daddy was a gold-silversmid. We put the hot silver into water and than there were several different shapes. Your blogpost makes me thinking of that time!

  5. This is very interesting, Viktoria. I think I would absolutely enjoy making jewelry like this. One of the many things on my long wish-list of things to do in the future... :)
