I love finding small vintage photos! I got a few recently at a antique show and one of them was an amazing Steampunk looking girl! Wearing a top hat and holding a cane she was perfect for a Steampunk/ Victorian inspired charm necklace. I also added vintage watch parts inside a vintage watch crystal along with a cool repro watch key charm. I think this necklace turned out super cool!

Here’s a couple of Steampunk themed collages I made recently. They both use a cool steampunk girl stamp from Sweet Pea stamps. The larger collage is on a vintage Bingo card with metal gears and cogs, move-able clock hands, it’s hanging from wire on metal grommets with a key charm.
The Art Card is on a reproduction small Bingo card that says Woman’s Auxiliary Air Force, it also has a metal gear.
They are both currently avilabe in my Etsy Shop.
I’ve been very busy making lots of collage art soldered pendants for Halloween. I’ve done lots of witches, women and little girls, a bat fairy and some little wizards too. I think some of these would be great for Harry Potter fans also Each hand cut collage is mounted on vintage Italian book paper and sandwiched between glass and soldered around the edges. I added black patina to the solder. These pendants are currently available here in my Etsy shop.
I adore the little grumpy witch asking “who are you calling a witch?”, I almost kept her for myself
I’m really happy with the bat fairy, I think she’s so cool.
A while ago I had found some lovely small vintage photos at an antique store. I think they must have been a type of model shot, some had the same girls in different outfits. They are the perfect size for jewelry. I turned this pretty girl into a fairy by adding blue wings to her. I didn’t want to cut the actual photo so I cut the edge of the wings to match her shoulders and applied them onto the photo. I also added the word “fly” from a vintage book and mounted her on vintage French book paper. The tiny collage is sandwiched between glass and soldered around the edges. Because the photo is black and white I added black patina to the solder to pull everything together.
Here’s a few more of the soldered pendants with vintage illustrations I’ve made recently………….
These are all curently available in my Etsy shop.
I also have listed a smaller version (5″) of my vintage white button heart in an embroidery hoop in my shop as well.
Here’s a super fun pendant I made recently, it would be perfect for anyone who does any kind of paper crafts, sewing, school teacher, hair dresser, etc.. I took an image of a girl from a vintage dictionary and drew a tiny pair of scissors in her hand. I cut the words “runs with scissors” from the same dictionary but wanted them to stand out more so I backed them with black cardstock. I sandwiched it between glass and soldered the piece and then added a really cool gold scissors charm to the bottom, the scissors actually open and close, neat huh?
Here’s a few soldered glass pendants I did this week, each with a nature theme.
This one is an illustration from a vintage children’s book from 1929, it’s a sweet girl kneeling in the water at the ocean’s edge and she’s holding up a star fish, I added the words “mermaid dreams” cut from a vintage dictionary.
