How do you weld the ends together? Silver solder? Then how do you make that weld look like the rest of it?

Yes it’s silver Solder and then I use a sulfur in liquid to make the knot stand out

Thanks I used the small pc board v to do the design on the knot but told the the program I was using the 122 ball nose and set my cut to .010
It makes great detail finish work

Hi @Rasser00,

Beautiful piece. Can you elaborate on the “sulfur in liquid” part for making the knot stand out ?
Also if you have other pieces of jewelry you have done with your Nomad, I would love to see them, we don’t get to see many of those around here.

Many jewellers use “Liver of Sulphur” to oxidise metals. I’ve got some but have yet to try it. Perhaps that’s what’s referred to?
