What did I learn this week? That the Diamond Distinct actually close down for a week or two in starting late June! So I couldn’t get any silver, dammit. I don’t know how I will get it now since I start working on Monday…
At least I managed to buy my stones at my regular jewel place (which felt like it was the only thing open at the time). And I went bonkers and brought $60 worth of stones and gemstones. LOL. That day money couldn’t stay in my pockets…
But my worries were all for naught as I learn that I SUCK soldering ear posts. I mean SUCCCCCCCCCCK. It took me most of the class to put these bad boys on because the ear post was so thin and the solder was being a dick and not wrapping itself around the earring and ear post. I had to do one over three times because it wouldn’t wrap around properly and left a hole.
Then I had to tripoli it all over again because I had burned it off soldering the ear posts on.
At least I managed to get that icky black burnt spot with a wire tool and brushed it out.
But next week, all I have to do is set the stones, put matte and rouge and I am done. Yay!
I will post up pictures of my haul later on!
