MAKING RINGS WITH COPPER WIRE AND PLATING USING A RECTIER.

Yes! It’s me at my home studio making jewelry. I have a creative mind and I love work. I like repurposing using items usually considered to be junk, garbage, or obsolete.  My favorite projects are jewelry-making, paper crafts, and recycled crafts. It’s been a while since I’ve done this project. I think it was in 2016 and this made me say, “Oh my God, I just can not stop doing it!” I love doing things once and moving on to the next thing, so I made a lot of jewelry recycling soda can and beer bottle caps too. I will write another post about this soon. At this photo below I was working using copper wire from the refrigerator to make rings. I had to learn how soldering and after I had to learn how could I plating my rings on gold, silver, and platinum using  Electroplating Kit system. It was an exciting experience in my life for sure! I AM A KIND OF PERSON WHO DOES NOT GIVE UP UNTIL I CAN GET A NEW PROJECT.  I always remember I can do anything I set in my mind to, but I need take action, have perseverance, and facing my fears.

Permanence, perseverance, and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak. Thomas Carlyle
