something new....

a little something new~soldered pendants~ this is just one piece~ images are the front and back~i have been wanting to try my hand at soldering again for awhile~its been years! this is just a practice piece i used regular window pane glass and cut it to size the regular glass was tooo thick and way to heavy once the solder was added~so i ordered microscope slides should be here next week sometime~ even tho you can't see it in the pic i soldered a loop at the top for a chain or thong so it can be worn ~ i have a few other idea's floating around in my head for these~if i get the soldering down nice and smooth like i want i am going to do a blog candy give away~stay tuned~don't you just love the funky bird :) you can find the images on kristins site
www.retrocafeart.com she has some nice slide images

Your pendants look wonderful Tabby. Soldering is something I have tried with marginal success, these look great!

Oh Tammy...I love these! I have wanted to try this too and never have. Fusion beads has a new soldering kit out that they've been advertising which I've looked at a couple times but haven't done it...yet! I think these would be so fun to make! I am looking forward to seeing more that you do! They would make great ornaments, necklaces, charms, etc. I Love the bird!!! Hugs...~me
