Soldering and Making Crowns

Today has been a fun and busy day.

I worked all day, from 9:00 this morning until now - which is about 7:30 p.m. - soldering.

I'm trying to finish my sister's birthday present from last year because her birthday this year is less than a month away.

Now that's some pressure and some procrastination.

I've been planning to make a birthday celebration crown but it's such a big undertaking that I have needed several hours to dedicate at once to the task. Today I spent the whole day working on it, and am still not finished.

My soldering is really rusty, but I still love it. I don't mean I love it, I mean I LOVE IT!

Here's what I have so far.

I'll post some more as I get to it.

Later, I'll have to tell you all about my "new studio."

Love, d.

P.S. My el-cheapo Radio Shack soldering gun is also el-crapo. It's tipped burned off within a few sessions today (the first time I've used it!) and now it won't really heat. I'm going to change tips but I wouldn't recommend it to any one. I do have to say, however, that it is really easy to solder with... it's just junky.

Yes! I need help! I need help forcing my butt to sit in that chair and work on them instead of dragging out something new to start!!! When are you coming??? When when when??? And you can start on your own little soldered project (you will like it!)
