I did something today I didn't think I could do. I soldered a ring band! I had just assumed I couldn't, so I never tried. Then yesterday a girl from Australia asked me if I could make her's and her fiance's wedding rings!
I almost said no, then I thought, "oh well, what the heck, I'll try it."At first I was holding it with pliers and the solder would NOT melt! No matter how long I heated it! Then I thought, "Idiot! The pliers are acting like a heat sink!" When I layed it down and tried, it WORKED! You can barely see the solder line, and I'm tickled pink! Even if they don't like it, I DO. I learned that I can do it! I think I would like the ring more with only one wrap, so more copper would show, maybe they will too. I am honored and amazed that they want me to do this!
These pics aren't the best, but I just finished it, and I couldn't wait for morning to photo it! I usually take pics in the morning, outside. The light's best then.
I hope you all had a beautiful weekend and have a wonderful week!
