Look what I got for my birthday last month. For the past few weeks, I have been teaching myself how to use it, and teaching myself how to not burn myself.
I am happy to report success! So far...
Here are a few things I've made.
This first one is the very latest thing I made, for my big sis Sue.
Shhh, don't tell her, She hasn't gotten it yet and has no idea. She is an amazing artist. To hear all about her and see more of her work just click here:

I used a print of her color pencil artwork of a light house and ship,
and added and S for SUSIE. And below is the first thing I made. Its awful right? I surly did not know what I was doing. But it has become addicting.

And here are a few bracelets I made once I got better at it. They are a bit like those vintage watch bracelets I made a while back.

I'm so jealous, I have tried to solder several times and I just make a mess! So pretty!

I love the jewelry! Especially the Paris bracelet! Are you going to sell any? Thanks for visiting my blog and the comment about my doll. Isn't it amazing how late we stay up at night to read and post blogs? Do you mind if I list you as a favorite?

Hi Becky! Thanks for stopping by. I love when people drop in. Don't we all. Any way, your soldering is good. I need to practice a bit more. I'll have to come back and see your angel.

Hey Bec...this is your sis. I just bought a magazine to make those kind of things with the soldering. I've always had the interest but not the experience. I seen some really cute things made from watch frames. You are doing a great job.
Love,
Vicki
