Today went pretty much sideways from what I expected, including my “official” planned jewelry project.
I’ll probably work on my chain some more here in a little while, but I decided to go ahead and finish the pendant I started the other day.
Steps for that included making some larger jump rings to connect it together, soldering those closed (soldering chain links is a whole skill on its own), setting the opal, polishing it a little, and tumbling it.
I wasn’t entirely sure all of that was going to come out ok, but there were no major disasters. I’m reasonably happy with it.
