Inspired by my New Year’s “decision” to craft more, I invited my friend, Kate over for a day of soldering. This was the first time I soldered without guidance or assistance from experience solderers. (Joy and Sheila, you know I’m talking about you)
Here she is working on some of her charms.
The most fun part of soldering for me is putting together the images. This day, I decided to keep it simple and focus on images of love. I made some cute vintage rose square charms and uncovered a bag of glass drops that were purchased ages ago and made some bubble charms too. What fun!
Here are my creations.
Some of Kate’s adorable charms.
My creations will be heading over to my mall space as part of a Valentine’s Day display.
Kate and I had so much fun crafting we didn’t want to stop. In fact, my dining room table is still covered with all of my supplies as I keep thinking I’ll have some time to sit down and make some more. The reality is that I have already brought out my box of jewels to work on some other crafty projects. I’ll have to show you those on another post. Hope you’re having a fun and possibly crafty week!
