Broken China Workshop



After viewing the wonderful videos in Shari's workshop, I got up enough courage to try my hand at soldering some broken china.  As a relative newbie to soldering, it was a bit intimidating, but Shari is there to answer any questions you have.  These are my first pieces and they are far from perfect, but they are a start nonetheless.  If you want to expand your soldering basics and incorporate broken china, I highly recommend the workshop! Thanks for stopping by my nest and have a great day!

Take Care - Robin

This is impressive, it looks stunning and very charming - the broken china and the slightly imperfect edge works perfectly together.

Adorable - they look just great to me. You sure can't tell you're new to soldering! I expect you'll be looking at china in a whole new way now!

Hi Robin,
Thanks for your recent visit to my blog and for leaving a sweet comment. It's been a while since I have visited any blogs, oh my, you have been a busy bee. I so admire you for taking on the challenge of sodering. I have had all the "stuff" for over 5 yrs. just sitting in my closet, afraid to make the plung! I love your broken china creations!!
Thanks too for Shari's workshop site.
Hugs,
Barb
