i think the rings are stunning. I use to make earring and soldering them together.and i enjoyed it.

Did it take you long to get use to the torch?

I'm still not used to it :). But right after watching Kate Richbourg's Micro Torch Basics course I had enough courage to solder jump rings. And they all turned out very well.
