i made stamped metal charms for friends that are running a half marathon this Sunday- so proud of them!

Cat said...

This month I began stretching my imagination and made many metalsmithed items. A flower pendant, two free form fuzed pendants with a small cab mounting and the other with a bezeled turquoise stone. I pounded out a cross out of a small piece of wire and mounted a red cab in the center. It was fun to forge a pair of chunky earrings and form a wire bangle that I wire wrapped and strung a large heart shaped turquoise stone. I made free form wire earrings into flower shapes with fresh water pearls in the centers and finished sever stacking rings. A beard tie is still in the process of refinement, for my brother's ZZTop do. Oh, and I designed a copper sun on brass with a bezel for an unusual turquoise stone. Dang...and I made two fold form bracelets! Still working, but I would love to win this one. Cat

I just finished a necklace with wire squiggles (made with a Jig) and papermache beads. I also made two sets of earrings with copper stamping blanks and brass filigrees.
I took a smithing course for a year or two, but have not been able to get back into it, due to how expensive the equipment is. I would love to get back into it and begin making beautiful, unique things again!

I'm getting crazy with mustaches. All sizes are a must have for my craft collection. I like making earrings and necklaces with them, but the idea of soldering makes me silly with happiness.

Just created a silver and brass fish - complete with scales (!) to be worn as a necklace with a black cord. Love your blog and would love to be the lucky winner of the soldering set.

I've been knitting and repairing earrings that get caught in my knitted garments. I would love that torch and all that stuff. When I thought we were going to move to the east coast, I sold ALL of my soldering stuff. Well, we ended up staying right here, which is wonderful. But I miss my torch!

This is a great kit. I would love to begin soldering to make jewelry.

This month was craft-tactic for me! Made a hand-stamped multi-shape metal and pearl necklace to celebrate a birth. Also had fun learning how to cut adhesive vinyl with my new electronic cutter -- I foresee combining some cutting and jewelry making in the future. I have wanted to do fusing and soldering with a torch forever... Would LOVE to win this!

I'm working on my BSBP projects, but haven't finished, plus some more designs for ZNETshows and I just got Kate Ferrant Richbourg's book on soldering, so I'm anxious to get some soldering supplies and try out her tips, methods and projects. This would be great for that.

Soldering would be a fantastic addition to my options in creating jewelry. Thanks for all the classes and products you offer.

I am working on so many things right now, almost too many to count, and of course, not enough time. Winning this package would be great as learning to solder is on my list of things to learn.

I work in PMC and make earrings, so soldering posts to the earring is an important step. Thanks for all the good beaducation videos.

I made some recycled glass earrings!

ellie said...

you're right. soldering, to me, is like the wizard behind the curtain. it is mysterious and also where so much of the magic takes place. i would LOVE to win this. perhaps it would be a sign from the universe to stop wishing and get soldering.

So far this month, I have made a pair of earrings, finished a bracelet, and made a necklace. Better than I'd hoped, since it's busy season at work!
