Been hanging out in the studio this week. At this moment I smell like solder! Been soldering all morning. I started my week bending wire for earrings and soldering chain links I'm gonna use for earrings.
I had bezels made in the shape of hearts from a previous day in the studio. I also added a round cooper wire to the design. The cooper wire was tough to bend and even tougher to cut. But, I found a handy heavy duty wire cutter in the tool box....it worked wonderfully! I had already cut metal and filed down the edges. It was time to match pieces.
This is what I did this morning...soldering soldering soldering. I love this part but I must admit it's a smelly process, I must have my ceiling fan on and the window open. It's breezy today and that helps move the air around in the studio.
I'm taking a break from the studio for the next few hours to meet friends I haven't seen in awhile. I love working in the studio and boy it does take so many steps to end up with my creations. Break time!
