Thursday's Work and Fairy Size
This is today work. I'll finish them all on Friday, with plenty of time to drink some wine.....ha ha
My order for diamonds ( including my fairy diamonds) came today from New York. I buy from Joseph Blank, and even though I am a small buyer, they give first class service-every time without fail.
So tomorrow and over the weekend I am working on her.
I was asked to show a picture of her size.
I have soldered her wings on and that was very tricky, I must say. Anyway, nothing was melted. Thing is, I can only use hard solder for everything on her, because of the soon-to-come enameling.
I seldom use any other solder other than hard for any work, but in a multi joint piece like this with the thin wing wires and the relatively heavy body, I worked up a bit of a nervous sweat and lost the last two hairs on my head...
Doesn't matter though, because my eyebrows and my hairline have not been on talking terms for years.......
