Soldering!

I like learning about new things and lately I've been trying out soldering. 




soldering stand, slides, solder, flux, and coffee (of course!)




I've made some flower and leaf microscope slide magnets.










I'm not sure that they're sales-worthy and my soldering iron tip disintegrated while making them, but it was fun to try. 


After I replaced my soldering tip (and bought a different iron because I couldn't find a replacement tip for the original) I tried out stained glass pieces. 






The far right green one looks like Illinois, right?!

It went a bit easier this time and the soldering tip survived!!!  I might even make these into necklaces or charms for bracelets for KateeMarie.
