And the Soldering Continues...

I really think I am getting the hang of this soldering stuff. The beveled glass is still tough though. The darn thing just won't hold still.

The soldering kit my mom bought came with little 0.5x1 inch tiles and we weren't sure what to do with them. My idea was to put letters in them because who doesn't like wearing their first initial around their neck? I made one for myself and one for my mom. The first one turned out pretty bad...good thing I made it for myself! The second one turned out much better.


And on the back, I just soldered the whole thing:


The monarch butterfly wing pendant (my new favorite):


with the charms
These are some my mom made using some of my doodles. I really like how they turned out; she has a good eye:


The soldering on these could use some fixin'. I was out of patience when I was finishing them. I'll touch them up on another day, when my soldering skills are fresh.
