soldering class

Yesterday I took my first soldering class here . The class was taught by Josie. She is a fabulous teacher. Very patient and organizied. I will definitly be taken more classes from her. Now I'm hooked and of course I had to buy everything I will need to solder. After all, isn't that why God invented credit cards. Put the soldered found objects and beads on a bracelet. Wearing it right now as I type. I love the sound of the objects and bead make as they clang together and hit my other bracelets that I'm never without.
Another heart to add to the collection. I love black and red. The cupid button in the middle I found in one of my mother's button boxes. The silver pieces were also hers. I don't plan on polishing them. I like the tarnished look they have.

Thank you for visiting my blog, and I do hope you'll be back.

I love hearts myself, and red & black always look so well together! Tarnished silver -- I love the look -- and I really hate polishing it!! :)

What fun to learn something new like soldering -- sounds like you are loving what you've made, and isn't that what art is all about?!
