It was a drippy Sunday in Oregon but that didn’t put a damper on our spirits. A group of creative ladies came to the art studio to polish their soldering skills. Some have soldered before and for others it was their first time. We talked about supplies and techniques. We learned how to cut glass and where to shop. And most of all we had a blast getting to know each other. I was having so much fun that it wasn’t until almost everyone left that Jodi (pictured above) reminded me to take a photo. Goodness! How could it be that I forgot to take them during the workshop…shame on me!
Here is her scrumptious bracelet up close. She choose pictures of her family and even though she was a first time solderer, she whipped up these charms. AMAZING! The other newbie, Risa made a lovely soldered brooch with a vintage ribbon pin and lace encased in glass and solder. I was thrilled to see the work of these ladies!
So since I have so few photos to share with you (many thanks to Jodi for being the one and only) I’m letting you download the Simply Soldering Zine for FREE! Yep, that’s right! So if you want to learn how to solder, need to know where to get supplies, or simply want to brush up on your skills, check out this zine. I’ve shared all my best tips and secrets and hope you enjoy it!
