More Solder Play--Birds and Insects, Oh My

work in progress

I'm still working on Stephanie Lee's Homesteaders Metalsmith class. I tried soldering some stampings onto my flooded pieces.  The crown was the first one I did and I toasted it pretty well.  I think after I put a patina on it I'll be able to use it. 

These are all still works in progress.  The piece with the round bezel will eventually get resin in it, and I think I'm going to use my letter stamps to stamp a word below the big bird.  They all need holes for attachment rings and dangles.

Tomorrow I hope to get some chain done and more pendant pieces.
