I really enjoyed watching your videos but have a few questions. What

could see what you had in mind to do. Your work is lovely.

thanks Roxan…I try to start with hard and do medium if I need
to…though I think in this case, it was medium I had handy. if I’m
doing a larger piece, I’ll often go with medium because the larger
pieces need more heat because of the heat sink qualities of
silver…but with the smaller ones that aren’t too three
dimensional, I’ll use hard. Sometimes, the last stage of it, where
I’m soldering the bail or some part that is more 3D, I’ll go down a
step to med or easy so as not to undo the earlier soldering.

I’ll try to post a scan I did of the sketch this weekend with a
