So I have finally figured out soldering. I have been dying to learn, trying/failing, using the wrong kind of metals, learning about which ones are actually conductive, and trying some more.

These necklaces are made with those flat-back glass marbles from the fake plant section of the craft store. And copper and solder and paper and elbow grease. (I hate the phrase ‘elbow grease’, I just realized.)

And a sketch of Malcolm, the best dog I have ever had, drawn about 11 years ago.

This soldering stuff opens up so many possibilities for me now. And I’m proud to say I think my jewelry will finally stand out.

  1. Your jewelry has advanced SO MUCH just in the last few months alone! You’re doing great, little sister. I’m so very proud of you!

    And I do believe I need to commission one of those Malcolm pendants. Please make another one. KTHNX.

  2. How cool! I would not be able to do this given my track record with fire, hot things and attempts to be crafty (I had a bad glue gun incident years ago)

    I love that picture of Malcolm!!!
