I Did It!

Soldering has been one of my biggest hurdles in creating jewelry. Doing new things is sometimes hard for me...I stress out and get anxious. The idea of having to use the chemicals required for soldering (pickle, flux, etc.) stressed me out.

Tuesday night I took yet another class to help me overcome this fear and I think I may just kick it! I made two really fun and pretty soldered pendants and will try to solder by myself at home soon.
I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.
Here are the two pendants I made in class. The first is a jumbo funky pendant, which is too big for me but someone may enjoy wearing.

The second is one I made while waiting for others to finish their fusing/soldering. I'm a fast worker. :) I love this one!

I have all these ideas floating in my head for new designs now that I think I've conquered my fear of soldering. Wish me luck!

Good luck with the soldering Megan. Both of the pendants are wonderful. Soldering is something that I've been wanting to try as well. Can I borrow your mantra - "I think I can, I think I can"!!?
