Hmmmm... I couldn't braze that with the copper rods I'm using right now. Need... more... silver...

Great stuff though! How did you get it to hold together?

Thank you! The little wheel in the centre is held in by a pin, the rest in glued using epoxy. :meow:

I tried to use epoxy, but I'm not comfortable with it. In the end, my jewelry is damn sturdy, after all the brazing.

Epoxy seems fairly sturdy. Two part epoxy can be hit & miss though, so I use some that is designed for concrete & sealing. Nothing has come apart (yet!) in the 2/3 years i've been using it. But yes, brazing is far better. I also like using rivets where possible, but with some pieces it's just impossible. :)

I moved from two-part epoxy to brazing torch and silver. Limits my work (no plastics ;)) but is a lot more rewarding in terms of sturdiness and fun to work with.
