What We Made...

Lynne Suprock of Simply Pretty Things was in town for the Grand Reopening party and we thought it might be nice to squeeze in a playdate!  I'm not a morning person, but I got up early and met up with Lynne at the new shop for some coffee and soldering!

It's always fun to see Lynne!  We made a little book pendant that was featured in the Winter 2014 issue of Jewelry Affaire and made a pair of some shotgun shell bezel rings.  I think that I'll fill the rings with two-part epoxy clay and set some vintage rhinestones in them.

I'm really excited about the techniques that she shared with me.  My mind is spinning with all the different applications.  I had tried my hand at soldering before with not so good results, so this was definitely just the kick in the pants I needed to try my hand at it again!  I'm totally going to experiment and hopefully make some cool things!

Not only did we play with soldering, but we also practiced a bead stringing technique and looked at an art doll that she's working on.  We had a full Sunday morning!
