So we finished soldering up the setting today. This trellis has over 20 solder joints and all within a tiny, tight, little area.
Tomorrow morning I will put the setting in the magnetic tumbler to get an all around finish, and from there hand polish the setting.
Then tomorrow afternoon we are going to solder the head onto our shanks. Mine is 18k gold, and I'm hoping it will be very pretty with the yellow sapphire. I included one picture of the setting in process and still in the fixturing compound.
