On to our fourth and final giveaway for National Craft Month: SOLDERING! If there's one technique that everyone aspires to master, it's soldering. I don't know if it's the allure of fire, the layered metal, or the sexy safety goggles. Whatever it is, everybody wants some!

Max Flame Torch
Kiln Brick
Cooling Cup with Tweezers
Safety Glasses
Soldering Pick
Silver Solder Paste (0.25 oz)
Penny Brite

Craft Month? I love my "craft" of stamping, silversmithing, beading, and wire wrapping every day of every year! Just wish there were more hours in the day so I would have more time to spend in my 'woman cave'! This month I've been working on bridesmaid gifts for my neice. Crystals and initial charms. So very cool.

Brenda Cline said...

Learning to solder is the next level for any jewelry artist. Having the right tools is a must!
Controling and working metals is the best ever when I create.

I've created at least 100 pieces of wire jewelry in the past couple of months including, of course, metal stamping. And, it goes without saying, I'd love to win this kit. Soldering is next on my list.
