Oh, that is right, we crazy "Yanks" do not say the "L" in solder. Or if we do, its so slight you can't hear it. It is good to know that the British take the time to use all the letters in the word. I assume you say the "L" in Salmon too?

Hope you love the book. The firefly bracelet is really fun, just remember to use your jewelry making skills when doing it. K? Small tools, hand sewing, and beading are a must to make it shine. Email me at hello {at} iheartswitch {dot} com if you have any questions or want to share your work, I would love to see it!

Received your book in the post from today - I'm very keen to have a go at the firefly bracelet! Just one thing - in the UK, we do pronounce the L in solder. I had to look it up, but I had been getting very confused by Instructable videos and then your soldering advice on page 111, talking about 'sodder' all the time :)
