learning to solder


I’ve tried my hand at soldering a few times now and I get nothing but frustrated. I finally decided to take it seriously and signed up for an online class offered by Terri Brush. Gosh, I love her stuff! After watching the first video and using supplies I already had, I made these little charms.

I printed out some vintage images on shrink plastic and then used glass shapes I made from cutting up slides. So lots of new things being learned.

I’m off in search of better supplies this week, as I think I’ve reached the full potential of my current stuff. In fact, my soldering iron is falling apart! I can’t wait to play some more.

You’ll find this project over at Scrapscene on WIP Monday!

    Yay for you! Congrats on not giving up, and sticking to it. Your wee charms are…errr…”charming” :) Looking forward to checking back and seeing more!

    I’m still in the frustrated stage with soldering, but I have made a few pieces I like. Yours are very pretty, with the beads and topper.

So, what do you think ?
