oh heck. darn. crap. ick.
back to the drawing board. just when i thought all was perfect. darn. oh well, it’s just a case of one step forward, one step back.
the cufflinks came out looking great. no the silver isn’t shiny yet, it’s always dull when it’s fresh from the kiln before i toss them in the polisher. so i tugged and pulled and yanked and wham. not solid. the glass is not securely on the post. i refuse to glue them on because adhesive and glass and metal isn’t permanent enough. and there’s a huge weakspot where i’ve soldered the post onto the cufflink.
the pandora style beads are ok but not good enough yet. they’re getting there. i have to say these are turning out to be a huge pain in the butt. try again.
