I’ve been doing pretty good with my New Year’s goals. I promised myself I’d finish a few of the projects I started. So far I’ve finished up 4 bracelets, 2 necklaces, and a pair of earrings. It feels good to finish a project! I have some nice Easter basket goodies for my family and friends.
I also want to become better at soldering. I just love the look of soldered jewelry. I’m using the Walnut Hollow Designed for Her Tools Creative Soldering Tool. I really like this soldering tool because you don’t have to use flux, a liquid that you need to brush onto the foiling when soldering so that the solder bonds to the foil. Flux must be used in a well ventilated area, and it’s a little too cold to keep the windows open right now. Walnut Hollow’s solder already has the flux in it!! So there is no fuss, no mess! This tool is also lightweight with a comfortable grip to it. I’ve been practicing!
Ok, your turn, what New Year’s Day resolutions are you working on?
