Step 2: Step 2: Cut the Long Rods
Step 3: Step 3: Cut the Small Rods
Step 4: Step 4: Prepare for Soldering
Step 5: Step 5: Soldering
In this case, its best to whiten (dont know the right english term for "vitkoka" or "Weißkochen") before you shape it, since the shaping will make it harder and help it keep the shape.
Whiten it three times (warming it a bit, but not to much so the solders risk to break) to bring up the fine silver to the surface and keep it shiny longer. After each warming, put it in the acid and brush it with a brass brush.
