Links, Hook clasp, and Focal Point

With the exception of the tiny copper hammered washer (almost center of image); all other links were hand coiled, soldered, filed, sanded, and tumbled. The large links were hand coiled around a 1/2 inch diameter piece of copper tubing (just keeping it in the copper family). Soldering something this tiny was a wonderful lesson in going slow and used a lot of patience as I had to prep each link, solder, turn off the torch, then drop in water, and start all over. Good exercise for someone who is very impatient.
