Happy Accident in Jewelry Making
by Tina Murphy.
I like to use Argentium Silver because it is tarnish resistant and will fuse to itself.
While torch soldering this piece I was pressing it with tweezers when pop! My tweezers went right through the backplate!
After a few choice words I threw it in the pickle and thought about what I should do. When I looked at it I figured I should just cut out the back plate anyway to let the light through! It worked! Aka a happy accident! Saved the pendant!
