Treasury spot!


I just LOVE when I happen to be browsing the Etsy treasuries and
notice that one of my items is featured in a list! It happened again
last night, and my "Ssswirly Girl" earrings were included. 2nd row, 3rd
column... Yay!

I can really relate to what you say. I made sure that I had lead-free solder, but didn't even think about the flux. I had to go check, and it does say lead-free. It is just one of those Bernzomatic kits. I am about ready to graduate from it anyway; it was just convenient at Home Depot. I noticed that Silver is dropping. So, I probably will get an order ready, and try silver. I haven't started cutting metal, but would love to. I'll check that torch outfit you described. That sounds like a good and inexpensive option. I have torched copper with MAPP gas, so I am familiar with that sound. I just wondered if using a hose would be easier for soldering jump rings, etc. So many options to try. That just makes it more fun.
I guess I better call it a night. Take care,
Donna

Thanks Amber. I am big on books and research. I read whatever I can online, and have various books on different jewelry techniques. The only real metal technique book I have is "The Encyclopedia of Jewelry Making Techniques" by Jinks McGrath. My sister (not know anything about jewelry) gave me this for Christmas. She picked out a good one! At first, it seemed intimidating, but now, I understand more & more. It is not as in-depth as I need. I was thinking about buying the "Complete Metalsmith" by Tim McCreight. Is this a good start? Also, I have started soldering, and starting to get the hang of it. But, so far, only using copper and a plumber's flux/solder kit, using a small butane torch. Should I start with Propane and a torch head, and then progress to the dual tank?

I love advice, so anything is most appreciative. Donna

Love your stuff. I am also crazy about fire, those power tools, and just hammering to get out that frustration! I am trying to learn all I can about metal. It is inspiring to see artists such as you.
