silver Jewellery course week 6

I have finished my ring, well sort of, I have polished it by hand but it needs finishing off as I didn't have time in the class. Again I am frustrated, I had to wait, 20 minutes just to do one solder joint, while I waited for equipment to become free.
I struggled to attach the top to the ring, I didn't know how to do it and so asked Ian to help when I could get to solder it. When I finally got to the front of the queue to solder it he was nowhere to be seen so I had a go on my own, unfortunately it all went a bit wonky. I went to find Ian after as while I was fiddling, I was being chased to by other students to free up the soldering equipment. He was busy showing 2 other students photos of his sculpture work on his phone!!! I tried to get his attention, but he was not keen on being interrupted . By the time I finally spoke to him, it was too late and he said we would correct it next session - after half term

Generally I am pleased with it x


  1. I think it's really pretty, would love to be able to make my own. But really, this course sounds like more disappointment than fun, poor lass!

  2. I think you should be really pleased with it, I do understand the frustration of having to wait for the equipment, but it does look great!
