have any of you tried this?
Soldering. I love it, but it's hard. I have been trying it, along with my mother in law(we split the supplies), for several months now and I think there's a big learning curve (at least for me). I do see progress, though. As much as I say that I am not that great at it, I have still given my soldered pendants as gifts!!! I orginally bought my instructions from You Can Make This. And, those were a great start, but I have been reading tips and tricks on the internet for the last few days to help me figure out some things that I am just having a hard time with. I will say that I do love it even if it has been painful. I think I expect perfection and then I go and look at the ones I have purchased in the past and realize that they can look a little more "hand made" than perfect. So, if you have any tips or tricks for me, pass them on. In the meantime, I am just soldering away over here looking to improve.
