    Talking Competition fail - Here's what I coulda won...

    It was all going so well. Thought of a good idea for this months compo. Decided I'd make some ickle tiny copper and silver mittens to mount as earrings.

    Having never done earrings this would push me to try as I have some wires for another idea. Good practice I thought.

    Hammered and curved the copper wire to shape like a mit, and even managed to solder a little thumb on. Even more chuffed was I when I managed to make two tiny deep bezels out of 0.3 sheet perfectly that would go on like a cuff... You can see what's coming can't you...

    Trying to solder the 'bezels' onto the much thicker 'hand' I had to get the copper so hot that the solder climbed everywhere, and I even managed to completely melt one of the bezels. Here's what they looked like before I made some very bespoke scrap.

    I think I'll try something more suited to my Neanderthal hands
