 I hand solder every pendant for the silver necklaces and every focal piece for the silver earrings and silver bracelets for the "Silver Lining Collection". Each piece has its own story because they are all different.

 These are the tools that I use for soldering the design on the silver pendants and focal pieces. 1) Exhaust Fan to collect the fumes.  2) I use the wet sponge to wipe off the end of the soldering iron tip.  3) Solder  4) Flux, I spread this on the piece I am soldering. The flux allows the solder to stick to the piece of metal.  5) Needle nose pliers, I use this to hold the piece I am soldering.  6) I rest the tip of the solder iron on this. I also use it to clean off the tip of the soldering iron. 7) Soldering  Iron

After I  am finished soldering the pendant or focal piece I need to clean it up. 1) Exhaust fan to collect the fumes. The polish has a strong smell when cleaning a lot of pendants. 2) Dremel, I use this to smooth all of the edges from soldering. 3) I brush the polish onto the finished piece and let it sit for a bit. 4) I use the rag to wipe off the polish and shine the pendant or focal piece that I will use for the silver necklaces, silver bracelets and silver earrings.
