Fear and Confidence with Your Torch and Soldering

A couple of weeks ago I asked the question here at JewelryMonk.com:

If you could remember back to when you first started making jewelry, (for some of you it might not be that far back) what were some of the fears you had about making jewelry, that kept you from moving forward?

There was an overwhelming response, and quite a few of the answers had to do with Soldering and Torch Set-up.

Well, over the past weeks, I have been putting together a few FREE VIDEOS to help you understand a little bit more about different aspects of jewelry making, and THIS video is my way of combatting FEARS and CONFIDENCE around soldering and FIRE!

I will show you how I set up my torch, and give you a couple of quick soldering examples.

Check it out HERE,

This is the 3rd video in a series, and if you missed the first 2, make sure you go back and check them out.

When you subscribed to JewelryMonk.com, you wanted to get updated with new content and info from the website. BUT, I also want to learn from you what you would like to see my end……

SO do me a favor…….

After the video, Scroll Down and Leave a Comment.

I want to know if it was helpful and what your thoughts are.

As always, Take Care…..

I know when I first got started in jewelry making, even though it was quite a few years ago, I still remember I was floored by all the steps and techniques used in the craft of making jewelry.

Well, over the past weeks, I have been putting together a few FREE VIDEOS to help you understand a little bit more, how some of it fits together. THIS video is kind of of an overview of some of the processes used in getting jewelry from the concept, or idea phase, to an actual physical shiny piece.
