I think this Pirate necklace turned out so cool! I made a soldered glass charm using a vintage dictionary illustration, I soldered a vintage Scrabble tile (X marks the spot), hand stamped a metal tags and added a skull bead.

I’ve added several smaller soldered glass charms to my Etsy shop made with vintage dictionary illustrations. Snippets of the definition for each animal is on the back of the pendant. I love how adding black patina to the solder really gives them that cool old look.
