I've always drooled over perfectly soldered pieces of art, but any soldering attempt I made failed miserably. Even after taking a class here and there my attempts looked like a kindergartner had done the job. I'm not quite sure what Karen's secret is, but I was able to solder my birdie perfectly with her instruction. THANKS Karen, I had a great time. I will admit that she soldered the jump rings on for me, I haven't quite mastered that technique quite yet.
Here you can see the MESS we made of the counter, the table was full of laptops and the studio is already a complete mess so this was the only place we could work.
