First project with my new torch!

I finally got a "real" torch that gets hot enough for any type of project. It's a wonderful Smith Acetylene/Air system, and I really love it. Very quiet, with a nice soft flame that's easy to control. Sooooo much better than the butane torches I was using! This ring is big - it goes knuckle to knuckle, and it was no problem getting the whole thing hot at the same time for soldering. I love the stone, too - it's Opalite, and the mix of colors means it goes with just about anything! I've got a big stash of great cabochons building up, so I'll be busy as a bee the next few months making new lovelies. Stay tuned.....
