Silver Passport Workshops


married metals


Married metal is a term used to describe the process of soldering contrasting metals together using a hard solder (higher temperature). Typically copper, brass and silver.

After soldering the pieces together, they can be re-cut and soldered in contrasting positions. This can be done again and again to achieve an intricate pattern.

This finished panel can be made into a design or set like a stone.
