The premise of this style of bracelet is that it is permanent.
Often friends get matching bracelets, or that there is meaning attached to the bracelet and that it is permanent – forever. There is no clasp and the chain is welded straight around the wrist. Often they are made with 10k or 14k solid gold, 925 silver or 14/20 gold filled. I would not suggest plated chains as the plating might flake off and won’t last as long. You can add gemstones, charms and connectors for a nice variation and customization.
I measured her wrist and used a 24 ga 3mm jump ring as connection. It is important to know that the wires of the jump ring opening must be completely flush. The ends must touch in order to weld together since there is no solder being used.
Are you using wire or home made jump rings? It is best file the ends flat so they meet with the maximum amount of contact.
Use a piece of leather to protect the skin from any sparks or possible fly aways. If you don’t have leather, use a thick piece of canvas or jean material. Do not use synthetics like nylon, which will burn or melt. Fire scale happens when oxygen burns. You’ll have the same in soldering with a flame. There is an argon gas connector that you can purchase for all models of the Orion Micro Welder. I own one and I found that the puff of argon gas minimized the fire scale. However, it did not eliminate it completely. It is also expensive to keep refilling the argon gas. Hack – I used an eraser on the back of the pencil to rub away any fire scale.
Are you using a chain that has many crevices and texture? You may wish to use a brush or soft steel wool to remove the fire scale. Components I used: 1.1×1.7mm curb chain gold filled (online product code Ci14G)
