Nest Feathers and Twine - Formally Artist's Block Studio

The things that make a house a home and the stuff that holds is all together.

Years ago I started this blog with a mindset and goals that I have found have changed direction over time. I am excited to say that this blog has a new name.....Nest Feathers and Twine. I hope you come by and visit often. Feel free to get comfortable and kick off your shoes and join me on this journey of metamorphosis.

smooth soldering

last week i decided i was going to spend the whole weekend in my studio if need be until i mastered perfect soldered dots. up to this point i have only been able to create lumpy-bumpy-rough-scratchy-blobs. i had originally soldered this piece of broken vintage china a year ago and it has just been hanging around my studio waiting to be made into the perfect piece of jewelry.
the more i practiced making dots the more solder accumulated
on this piece and i figured it was destined for the trash.
but after awhile the 'icing' effect grew on me......and the bonus is i mastered the dots!
