Default wire links

I am using pure silver wire to make braclet lnks. Does it matter what
order I do the soldering in. should I solder the rings first, or pound
them first?
Thanks

Why don't you try both methods, and see which one gives you the result
that you like best.

If you pound them, I take it you mean forge them? It is better to solder
them first as they will open up and you will have to reshape the links
again.
