Using Silver plated but making it quality? - 10/05/11 12:15 PM

Hi All, I am fairly new to jewelry making but have done enough to try to sell some of it. I have one issue though. When I wire wrap using silver plated 20gauge wire I can't seem to get the loops tight enough so that the links stay together. Does anyone have a solution? Can silver plated be soldered? My goal is to sell a few pieces of what I have made then start to upgrade to sterling silver (or Argentium). Should I just forget that idea and just go to the real deal now...my husband may devorce me if I spend another dime without making a dime:eek:! I appreciate your help. Karen
