    I really must take the time to learn how to do this type of work. A soldering iron, I believe you said, is your tool of choice here?

    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. My sister, just 3 years older than I, passed away 15 years ago and I still miss her. She was just 55.

    Keep on making your beautiful jewelry. I have found that being creative helps to redirect your energies and provides a good focus.

    Your pendant design is just fantastic. I’m looking forward to seeing many more of your terrific pieces. :)
