What materials did you use? 14 gauge sterling silver wire

I used 14 gauge half hard wire. Next time I will use dead soft as it was a bit difficult getting the joins flush. I can still see some of the seams, but no one will see them when I'm wearing them! Pretty happy with how the turned out. Not bad for a first timer! : )

Congratulations!!! I think I am going to get started with this project soon. I've always been scared to try this, but after watching the instructor and also seeing your finished results, I think I'm ready. Laurie

It was a little scary the first time i used the torch, but now it's no issue at all. In fact I love soldering! I'm still not very adept at it. I've melted a few things. But I also was able to take some of the mistakes and make them into some very interesting pieces. you definitely need to try it! The one piece of advice I would say is very important to remember is that solder follows the heat. So be mindful of where you are directing the flame and the heat so your solder flows where you want it to flow. Have fun! : )
