Workbench Wednesday

here's a glimpse into my studio this afternoon...
which had the most beautiful view
of freshly fallen snow outside the window

i'm working on restoring and repairing these beautiful
enamel heirloom pieces

this project has taken MUCH longer than originally expected.
the old solder was different
than anything i'd worked with before
and had a significantly low flow temp.
(which left the enamel looking off)

to get the enamel to "re-flow" i needed to buy a new torch.
one which gets hot with a nice clean flame
(my old one is sooooo tiny, and not hot enough to fire larger pieces)

anyways... i'm hoping to have these beauties done by November
for the patient and friendly owner :)

what's in your works this week?
