11th Class

The jewelry class is over. Last week my computer was in the shop so I couldn't update in a timely fashion, so here goes.I finally got my bezel cup soldered!It took 7/8 different tries. I had to rework the solder on the cup itself after finally getting the cup soldered to the base. In addition to the bezel cup I made more ball/head pins & soldered my second rivet project. It took a ridiculous amount of time/heat for the pin on the rivet project to ball up, & the cogs I used were affected when it was all said & done. So it wasn't completely in line w/ my original vision, but it's all about the learning curve!
