Small-Space Soldering: Learn to Choose a Torch, Create a Workspace, and Make Metal Jewelry

 

When I first began soldering and making metal jewelry, I assumed I needed a big studio stocked with lots of expensive tools and equipment. It's certainly fun to do it that way–the studio I learned in was the best stocked I've ever seen–but since then, I've made jewelry in a variety of spaces with various amounts of supplies, and it was just as fun!

In her book Simple Soldering, Kate Richbourg writes, "Whether you have a large room or a cozy corner in which to practice your craft, proudly proclaim it My Studio." This is some of the best jewelry-making advice I've ever heard and I share it every chance I get! It's true, you don't need a huge studio and tons of supplies (or bravery!) to learn to solder, and Kate's live web seminar, Small-Space Soldering: Demystifying Everything You Need to Start Soldering, will help you get started soldering jewelry with just the right supplies and space.
