Soldering with Sally Jean

Today I soldered with Sally Jean.  I'm not in it for jewelry making like everyone else in the class.  I like making charms to include in collage and assemblage pieces.  And, it's fun.

Aside from popping a very hot soldering iron out of a sal block and into my hand at one point, I'm pretty much unscathed.  And, I have this charming bracelet around my arm.

The little charms are tiny collages.  It's hard to get good pictures of them individually with my IPhone, but they are sweet and make a fun charm bracelet.  I'd like to do one like this with pictures of my children.
