Do you sometimes forget to post pictures of what you have been up to? I do! I get so involved in making pieces that I don't want to stop and take the time to take pictures and write a post.
So here is a little of what I didn't post...
The focal for this necklace started with a vintage button and the back of an old watch. I made a copy of a lovely old cabinet card and used it in the watch bezel and covered it with ice resin then cold connected it to the button. To add to the vintage feel, I added a tiny locket with baby pictures, MOP buttons, vintage chain links and sari silk.
Soldering glass slides is what got me started making jewelry. I saw a charm bracelet with soldered charms and knew I wanted to learn how to do it. So now many charms later, I'm still liking the look and discovering all the things you can place between two glass slides. This one has a vintage piece of pulled or drawn thread lace preserved between the pieces of glass.
More soldering-doesn't she look mysterious? A glass bulb from a Christmas tree light was added to a 22 caliber shell casing to form the dangle.
