Resin Collage and Solder Explosion

My first resin collage pendant! I love it. Still a little sticky~resin apparently takes a long time to cure. Or I didn't stir it well enough. But this was sooo fun! And I even tried soldering for the first time. See up at the top? That messy blob of solder? Wait until you see the back:

I call this "solder explosion"! I love that I tried. And I'll try some more. Just need time~

Cool quote from the Luanne Rice book, "Dream Country", I'm reading right now (actually re-reading. I read it a while ago and now it's time to enjoy it again):

"When he was young, his mother had told him, "If you're going to pray, don't worry. But if you're going to worry, don't pray."

YAY Chris! You did it! Soldering is HARD, it just takes a lot of practice. I usually have to do some clean up with a file or a diamond burr. LOL But it gets easier the more you do it. I'm so glad you did it! I love the pendant!
