soldering

I dug out some solder - had a new soldering iron brought for me for Easter (and a chocolate egg of course!!) and had a lesson from someone who's been soldering for over 20yrs. He gave me some awesome hints and tips and I had great fun, and can see all sorts of directions this is going to take me.

The two little girls in the photo are my OH great nieces who are totally adorable and sweet, and I have made this for their mum for her birthday. The charm is double sided and has a photo on the back as well and is about 2" by 2".

All of them have silver 'jump rings' to hang them by.
Also had a play around with a Domino, and was pleasently surprized when it didnt melt under such heat. i can see all sorts of things that really do need some soldering on now!!!!

Dominoes are a bargain at Tescos. What is with you two, as soon as anyone gets any near catching up you raise the bar.

Great work Heidi.
