With the wind and rain, there wasn't much better to do today than to flesh out my soldering skills. I don't think I accomplished much, but I tried. It's just been one of those days where nothing turns out right. I'm not angry or frustrated, though. I should be, but I'm not. It happens. I bought some flux that is too thick which made the soldering thing a nasty unpleasant chore rather than a jewelry making adventure. I did make some balls and put them together for a nice pair of earwires. They went on a pair of citrine earrings that I made a few days ago. I wanted something a little nicer for them.

See the 3 little balls on the earwires? I did that :) Not the best job, but my first. I did another pair of earwires that came out much nicer. I haven't used them, yet.
You might remember the incredible weave technique from the post I did on it. It makes beautiful earrings. I did a few more pair, too.

That's about all I have to share today except for this:
I hope that everyone in Sandy's path takes all the necessary precautions to stay safe and that the storm doesn't cause you any grief.
