Check out the samples for the Intermediate Soldering retreat

Just finished and updated some great new samples for the Intermediate Soldering retreat - and yes, I made them, so I'm saying so myself: they're great!

There's a koi fish broach, a gorgeous jumbo size hollow cylinder bead and a hollow ring - all made to teach students more soldering skills, including working with hard solder, using firescale retardant fluxes and strategies for positioning pieces for soldering. All of which helps to reduce scale and discoloration of the metal and makes for a much easier time polishing.

There's still a few spaces left - sign up up soon!
