As an introduction to my new toys, I re-polished a few pieces of jewelry - the Dremel is so much better than the little cheap rotary tool I had before. Polishing will go much faster with the better quality tool. I also familiarized myself a little bit with the new torch by making a bunch of handmade sterling silver balled headpins and earring wires.
Here's my first piece with the new handmade balled headpins and earring wires:

So now I get to look forward to making a huge order from a couple jewelry supply shops to get some soldering supplies and more silver. I always love the anticipation of getting a big box of shiny wire!
