I was sure I'd find some info here, but my searches have been fruitless.  Can someone offer advice or give me better search parameters?  I'd like to make jewelry using pieces of broken pottery and some kind of wrapping for the edges.  I'm not sure if copper foil tape would do it or if I should use some kind of silver bezel wire.  Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you!

Check out the book: Simple Soldered Jewelry and Accessories

http://www.amazon.com/Simple-Soldered-Jewelry-Accessories-Fashioning/dp/1600590306

Further down the page you will also see the book: Pretty Little Things


Both of these books use the copper foil and soldering method which is what you are looking for.

Thanks!  In the short time since I posted this I attempted to use the copper foil/solder method.  I SUCK.  I hope the book and practice will make it easier for me! Smiley
