Ah! The kids have officially gone back to school as of 7am this morning!! I will allow myself to be lazy for at least and hour, tackle one room of the house and clean it the way I like it cleaned (having kids clean in the summer is great but they don't always do it the right way...) and then go to my studio, sit at my bench and breathe.
That's where my head is a lot. Right now it's on how to solder thick silver bangles. Oh man...the headache I've been having trying to do this. Luckily there is an awesome group of jewelers on Instagram and so I posted the question of "help! Need tips and tricks!!" The response was so awesome!! I am now armed with more options and I'm learning new stuff. I love that!
Here's the link to the post on Instagram. Like I said, all the feedback has given me new hope for those bangles!
Well, I'm off to be lazy for a few more minutes! I hope you all have a great Wednesday!!
