Welcome to Stormflight Designs


If you've always wondered about how jewelry is made and fine craft is done, this is the blog for you! Our intent is to show you the step-by-step of creating jewelry from a silver-smith's and lampworker's point of view. We'll throw in some other interesting craft-work too. Consider this a "tutorial-light" blog in a way. You'll get to see the creative process from start to finish. Sometimes it may take a while to get to the finish, so please be patient! We often have to wait for the muse to strike--sometimes in the middle of a different project!

Bumblebee - Step 4

Ok, now that I have all the parts for the bee it is time to put it together and solder it! It often takes a few times to get all of these parts soldered so they are strong and will holdup to everyday wear.

It looks like quite a mess, and really it is...but don't worry, it will all clean up.

I finally got it all soldered. It had to stay in the pickle pot for a bit to get all the discoloration off from the heat of the torch. It looks great now and its ready to be filled in with the filigree wires.
