Yes. Use an art paintbrush or flux brush to apply it to the gold hook and shell. Tin the soldering iron (apply a little solder to it when it is hot)

Place the shell and hook in position. Touch the soldering iron to the shell and hook. At the same time touch the solder to the area. Soldering should begin in a few seconds and will be like a mirror finish.

When finished let the jig cool and harden. Clean the flux off with thinner before painting. I use vinyl paint by Wapsi.
