Our SATEAM is doing a blog carnival
about the theme "how it came to be"
here is my story:
....actually it is all "popnicute's" fault *g,
thank you, Kay.
Many moons ago I read one of her posts in the Starving Artists Forum
.....she wrote about fusing something on some floor tiles.....
I didn't have the faintest idea what that could mean
Until then I never heard about the term "fusing" and
was amazed to find out that one could "solder" silver without
using actual solder. I couldn't get that thought out of my head so
I went to my good friend Amazon.de and found a book
about fusing (great book btw, Silver Wire Fusing
by Liz Jones), got some fine silver wire and started my torch.
I loved it and still do.
these ones I owe to popnicute aswell, cos I found
a little tut of hers how to fuse the hearts evenly.
and they are mine mine mine *g.
here some bracelets with fused links and balls.
Whenever I can I prefer using fusing (hey that rhymes *g)
instead of soldering, it looks much neater,
it is a wonderful technique.
