The Soldering Iron is Hot!

Here are a few photos of what I've been up to on a rainy Saturday.  The soldering iron heats up to 465 degrees F.  I take images and secure them between two hand-cut pieces of glass.  Then they are soldered together with lead free silver solder and a super hot iron!!  The pendants go on faux leather black or brown cord to become a necklace.  I also create Christmas ornaments with favorite photos that I solder together.  They'll be featured soon in my shop.

Thanks, Valerie. I took a class. It's a little tricky at first. Practice helps.:)
