Because I like more than one crafting technique this week I found myself going back to soldering.
I took a basic soldering workshop last summer, from a very talented local artist, Josie, who since then has become a friend. She also has a book out about soldering.
For a while I practiced with 60/40 type of solder. It contains lead, so it’s less expensive than lead free solder. It’s good for creating non-wearable items.
But since I like to wear my creations, I saved up some money to get lead free solder and I practiced with it in the last few days.
I used an old set of playing cards. They make cool images. I used all the face cards and then I ran out of glass.
And the Queen of Hearts is my favorite. You can see more or buy here.
