Glass Soldering

I thought I’d try my hand at glass soldering. It’s hard. My pendants are not turning out well because it’s tricky to lay the solder while holding the soldering iron. I ruined a few by burning the copper tape, and I accidently dropped one which cracked upon impact. Usually, I pick up jewelry-making techniques a little faster, but this one is going to take lots of practice!

Pretty in Pink Pig

If I remember this conversation correctly, Lizzie once told me that in the 70s, they decoupaged everything. I can see why because it is fun! A trendy company called Decopatch is manufacturing special paper that makes it easy to, as they say, “paint with paper.” I particularly like their paper mache animal forms. Last night, I finished a cute pig!
