Soldered

I´ve made this brooch some time ago and wear it a lot. It´s made from a postage stamp that I´ve cut to a circle, added a pebble and then soldered it. I´m not sure if I´ll ever become a soldering fan - I´m glad that you can´t see my bad soldering on this photo ;-) However, soldered art is this week´s theme for the Saturday´s Workout challenge, so I thought I could show you my brooch now.

This is wonderful! I've always hesitated to start soldering; it's on my "to do" list :)

ich mag Deine Brosche mit Libelle. Im Kreis zu löten finde ich richtig schwer.

Very cool Marion - I have a soldering kit, but have never tried. I always just assume I'll probably make a mess of it, or burn myself!!
