I've received a number of requests on how to make eyeglasses so I thought that is one video I think we could crank out for you at this moment. I didn't hold anything back on this one....you get to see all the problems that occur when old fingers try to do delicate work. It's really not as difficult as I make it look.
The important thing to remember is to make sure you choose the right sized wire for the figure. Also, as I point out in the video, use silver solder as it's much stronger than normal electrical solder. The last thing you'd want is for your welded joint to come apart once you've given or sold your carving.
So, have fun and don't burn your fingers….or the table top like I did.
