Well, I was a little behind schedule with brooch number 7. My Chi energy was definitely not flowing, anything and everything that could of gone wrong with this brooch went wrong. It was one of those days were on my soldering block there was one blob after another, I melted the bezel strip twice. Everything and anything just kept slipping or falling out of my hands. Even the little solder chips were very jumpy, one minute they are there and then they are gone and never to be found. When things like this start to happen I usually just have to step away for a while, try to clean up or maybe get my drawing book and work on a new design. Usually afterwards my Chi comes back and I can finish the piece, but I will admit this one made me sweat bullets!!
