Soldering kills, I mean skills

I have a tendency to churn out a lot of a certain technique when I am attempting to master it, soldering is no exception. I have been doing nothing but bezels lately, these with bails for the first time. Two of these I took apart and have now redone, I will take new pictures later, but here they are first pass through:

They are agate, picasso marble, and petrified palmwood. All handset in hand forged sterling silver settings with handmade bails and embellishments.

I was very frustrated by the time I finished these, but learned a lot in the process and THAT is the goal!
