Smooth bezel wire, 3 ft Flat bezel wire, 26 ga1/8 inch, for thinner stones, fine silver, cabochon setting
This 26 gauge smooth bezel wire is 1/8th of an inch tall and is for thinner stones. For this reason I suggest this bezel for the somewhat more experienced silver worker. This bezel wire has a tendency to melt if overheated so indirect heating with the torch is recommended. I find using sterling silver solder paste much easier. It has the flux already mixed in. I have 3 heat levels available in my store.
The bezel is enlarged in image.
The lowest melting point is the: #56
Extra Easy # 56 solder paste, melt temp 1145 deg.
Easy # 65 solder paste, melt temp 1240 deg.
Medium # 70 solder paste, melt temp 1275 deg.
Notice how the number get higher with the melting temp.
