On Saturday I attended a course at my local adult education centre entitled 'Make a pendant in a day'. Here is the result of my efforts!
We were all handed a 4cm square of sterling silver and invited to create a pendant from it using our own choice of method which the teacher was on hand to give advice (sawing, drilling, texturing, sanding, soldering, etc.). I decided to challenge myself and learn some new techniques. I learnt how to saw and was introduced to some soldering techniques. As you can see, I still have a long way to go on my learning journey but I did feel like I came away with some knowledge.
It didn't help that we ran out of time and my pendant didn't get to stay in the pickle long enough for all the black to come off from in between the leaves. I had also wanted to add some definition to the leaves before soldering but time escaped me for that as well.
What I have to decide now is what I should do next in this adventure. Advice from others will be gratefully received. Should I go ahead and buy some soldering equipment and try and learn from my mistakes? Or should I research further courses?
