Soldering Project

I am doing SueB's online Easy Soldering Workshop through Joggles. Forever I've been wanting to make those wonderful little soldered pendants, and guess what - NOW I CAN!!! I'm so pleased with how they turned out. My hubby even asked me if I had bought them, and I said "nope, made these today"...... The images are cut from fabric - one being a "Klimt" inspired fabric, and the other of some lovely ladies. The cords are machine made cords made to match the images. Both sides of the pendant have lovely images on them - mine are the same theme as the front, just a little different.

Dianne, they're lovely!

Erica said...

these are lovely, I've made some too, my husband taught me to solder, it's very addictive, I keep looking around the house to see what else I can solder together.
I'm going to get him to teach me to weld next...then we'll really be in trouble VBG

These are great! Just imagine, you could put together a teeny tiny little art quilt and showcase it in one of these.

Gorgeous Dianne!!!If you didn't tell you made them, I thought also where did se buy them? Especially the right one, it is real Art Deco. Is the surface smooth or does it still feel like fabric?
