Soldering for Virgins: The Bracelet
class description is as follows:
For virgins and not-so-virgins....a workshop filled with the basics of soldering, from what type of supplies to use (and why) to the tips and tricks of achieving a smooth and shiny finish. Discover how to solder 3-dimensional objects of unusual shapes and materials. A special sidebar of glass-cutting by hand for those who want to know it all!

In this class, you'll practice making small individual charms - each one different from the others, including square charms, 3-D charms, charms using beveled glass, found object charms, bubbles, double-bubbles, marbles and more. At the end of the day, you can attach the charms to a bracelet (not supplied) and wear your art jewelry proudly...

I am so excited and cannot wait!!!

Lucky You!! I bought Sally Jean's book and love it. I've tried a few soldered things. I promise, you'll be hooked.
Last year I was walking around the house to see what could be soldered...Have a great time.
