I have been a busy little bee this week and all the work has been hot hot hot, quite literally! Most of the work I have done this weekend was soldering. I was very organised last weekend doing preparations so that I could so a whole stack of soldering this weekend. I find it easier that way as I can get into a groove.
Of course what that means is next weekend I will have to do an awful lot of finishing and cleaning up - the jewellery equivalent of house work!
As well as making a pair of my bird earrings and bird pendant, which I will need stock of when my work goes into a gallery next month, I am cooking up something new.
I have a fabulous hexagonal smokey quartz, I have made a faceted ring and am now working on the setting.
Once I cut down and prepare the setting I can solder it to the ring.
Right now everything is sitting pretty high and it looks a bit crazy, but once completed this will be some serious bling!
