  • cufflinks and necklaces

    I have just joined this forum, it looks great & hope I can help others and others help me!

    I am struggling to source unassembled sterling silver cufflinks, my usual suppliers have stopped stocking them. I make fingerprint jewellery so need them unassembled for soldering.

    I have read the backs can be attached the the back of the silver clay with paste & fired together - has anyone tried this or know if it an option? I do not want to waste clay as it's sooo expensive.

    Also looking for new suppliers for necklaces, snake, & curb mainly.

    Thank you very much

      Thank you for the link but I already use cookson but they don't do the unassembled ones I need. I do use them for necklaces but would like to find them a little cheaper as my previous supplier was slightly better on price & free delivery. Also looking for a new charm style bracelet, not too chunky if anyone knows of a nice one.#


      Thank you for your time

        Sorry Mo, I didn't look at them properly, yes they look like they are what I need, they are a little different to what I have had in the past but look like they would be great. thank you

          I tend to buy loose chain and add my own clasps, cheaper and better quality.

            As for the original question, yes you can. Metal clay pieces are quite porous, even after firing, so absorb a huge amount of solder. Burnish the area to be soldered as hard as possible before you start.

            These might help:
