One of the great old children’s books I got recently was in really bad shape, pages torn, falling apart and crumbling but it wasn’t surprising considering the book was dated 1918, it’s almost 100 years old! It has some simply gorgeous illustrations in it, lots of cute animals reading books and fairies in flowers, they are simply lovely! Here are a few soldered pendants I’ve made with some of the illustrations.
An adorable frog on a lily pad reading:
A trio of birds reading / singing:
A sweet bunny rabbit reading, I love the little bird perched on the top of the book:
a dandy black crow all dressed up and strutting around (I added a black patina to the solder on this one):
a dapper fairy sitting in a morning glory (this one is going to my mom for her birthday, she loves fairies and is a world class gardener)
