Making: Silver

I’ve been teaching myself basic soldering in order to make some simple earrings and such. I put together and then soldered my very first earrings! They aren’t perfect but they are wearable, cute and make me happy. I worked out something simple for my first project so I wouldn’t be biting off more than I could accomplish. Three small 1/2 inch circles pounded flat and then soldered together. I also made the ear wires. I totally want to get a tumbler to see how that changes them and makes them shiny!

    The earrings look great. I like the hammered look.
    Glad you liked the bone marrow; we love to have it in the winter; roasted and spread on garlicky toast with gremolata.
