New Bangles - in process 3

Now it is time to give them a basic form, quickly slide them over the mandrel
and hammer happily away , with a plastic mallet that is

I wasn't a happy camper when doing this, 80% of my brass bangles broke 
at the solder point when forming them.

Recently I bought some brass solder and was really glad about finding some.
But the result wasn't pleasing at all.
I will re-solder the brass bangles with silver solder. I rather have a silver 
mark than the bangles cracking open when a customer wears them.
