Very, very cool art pieces! You should open a shop in Sedona, Az.!!! I would come and buy from you for quality wearable art!
Desert Shine answered:
Thanks so much Diane! We do some shows in AZ in Wickenburg, Lake Havasu and Kingman. I also have an Etsy shop @desertshinejewelry
ReikiForAll asked:
I like your design! Did you solder the 3 pieces on the back, glue them or what? That's a great stone too!
Desert Shine answered:
Thanks! I soldered the wire pieces first and then fit them around the stone
ReikiForAll asked:
I'm very impressed by your unnoticeable soldering job! My solders and welds are never so invisible.
Desert Shine answered:
Believe me...some of mine are pretty awful too! Especially if I'm trying to solder silver to copper.
brihuber110768335 asked:
What gauge wire did you use?
Desert Shine answered:
I think it was 18g but I may have used 16g. It's been so long I can't remember.
