A few weeks ago I signed up, at my local craft store, to take some classes. They were teaching a couple of classes on soldering.
I have tried this technique many times before with little success. So I decided that maybe it was time to have someone show me the techniques instead of trying to learn them from a book or video. Sometimes it just works out better that way.
So anyway last Sunday the 29th was my first soldering class. We learned how to solder posts onto metal to make post earrings. Here are some photos of the earrings I made.
