Playing around with solder. It took some getting used to but I really do enjoy it. In the top image you can see how I got better at soldering as I went along. I used glass slides that I found in the microscope box and I sandwiched photos of my grandparents, a window and a tree between two pieces. I then used copper foil all around the edges and soldered the whole works together. Adding the jump ring on the top was a pain, but doable.
The bottom image is of a beach rock that I used for a butterfly body and wire for wings. Lots of fun.
