“I want to learn how to solder but I’m SO afraid of the torch!” I hear this all the time. Many artists that create beautiful, beaded creations want to go to the next level and learn to solder so that they can add pendants to their pieces. What’s holding them back? Fear of fire! So, how do you take the leap from stringing beads together, to actually constructing metal jewelry? Take a class! I’ll be teaching classes this month both on learning how to join metal using cold connections and riveting, as well as teaching how to solder silver and copper. It will open up a whole new world of jewelry making just in time for the holidays and holiday gift making. I’ll walk you through the fire – every step of the way. Go to the classes page to sign up for an upcoming class. After all, you don’t have to fear the flame!
