~Soldered glass charms~


I'm crazy about these soldered glass charms! I had no clue how to make them but thought I'd give it a try. A while back I bought a stained glass instruction book and supplies. I then sat down and gave it a try. The soldering was tricky for me and I still can not get them smooth..Top photo is a necklace I wear everyday. It has a photo of my grandchildren & an oval of my daughter Nikki with tiny lock of her hair on the back. These were the first two I made. On the bracelet I have a vintage glass button, a graphic from my child prayer book and porcelain heart. It was a bit tricky cutting/snipping the china heart.... I love Raggedy Ann's so I used a stamp for that one. The black and white photos are of my brother & sister. I've made a few for my daughters and friends. So Gals if I can make them you can too. Just give it a try. They make such lovely gifts!
