Charmed, I'm sure!

Okay now. Don't laugh at my first soldering attempts!! Sally Jean said I should keep them for my trunk show. Trunk show, as in looking back and laughing at my first attempts, kind of trunk show!! Heehee! It's kind of like looking at the first bear I made. I love it because it's the first bear I made, however, the poor dear doesn't hide the fact that it looks like a poodle rather than a bear!!

The two largest charms have copies of original collage art I did the night before Sally Jean's class. I'm glad I had the good sense to copy the originals rather than use them in my first attempts at soldering. Occassionally I do have a rather brilliant idea!! Ha!

Moving on to bears now. See.....I am working on bears and not just playing with silver solder!! A rather motley crew, aren't they? I hope to have the two pandas ready for airbrushing tomorrow. We'll see. I'm really trying very hard to stay focused.....

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Love the pandas! They are truly adorable...

I totally understand about staying focused. There is always something to do it seems. :)

Aleta - I think Sally Jean must have been a great instructor. I don't think your soldering looks that bad. You were going for the vintage/rustic look - right? I am so envious of you going to even more antique faires. I swear I am going to have to come to Oregon in the summer so I can be an antique faire butterfly.

Oh, Jill! You would love Oregon in the summertime!! You should really think about it!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
