Here’s some new soldered glass pendants made with Edward Gorey illustrations from a vintage copy of T.S. Elliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cat” , which was the inspiration for the musical CATS.

If you’ve read this blog for any time you probably know how much I love Alice in Wonderland. I especially love the original Tennell illustrations which were published in black and white but sometimes you’ll find a copy with colorized illustrations. I found a small abridged version of Alice with color artwork at an antique store and they are the perfect size for pendants. Here’s a few soldered glass pendants I made recently with them.
I think Spring is finally on it’s way, I saw my first chipmunk of the year and the first dandilion has popped up in the yard!
To help celebrate this wonderful time of year I’ve made several soldered glass pendant with animals that make me think Spring.
All (except the lamb, which sold) are in my Etsy shop right now.
Here’s a collection of recent soldered glass pendants, all with cute zoo/wild animals.
All are currently available in my Etsy shop.
Wow, I’ve been a terrible blogger lately, sorry! Right before Thanksgiving my 93 year old Grandfather passed away and then I’ve been all caught up getting ready for the holidays, it’s been a hectic (and sad) time.
Right before all this happened though I spent a lot of time getting new jewelry pieces made and am just now getting them on-line. I made a bunch of single soldered pendants and also many charm necklaces too.
Here’s a few new Alice in Wonderland themed necklaces, all currently available in my Etsy shop (along with many more new items as well).
Thanks for stopping by!
Here’s a few soldered glass pendants I’ve made recently.
These are from a gorgeous book of fairy tale with illustrations from Tasha Tudor:
and these cuties are from a book about kids and ponies:
These pendants are currently available in my Etsy Shop.
Here’s a couple more recent Halloween soldered charms and one not so Halloween
This first is a tiny black domino, I used white permanent ink to stamp on the dancing skeletons, this is perfect for Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos.
This soldered glass pendant is a cool vintage hanging bat stamp I found on Etsy. I stamped him on vintage dictionary paper.
This last one is sooooo spooky….NOT It’s a Queen Bee charm necklace, the large soldered domino has beehive paper and a silver bee charm, the smaller says Queen and there is also a large silver crown charm.
These are all available in my Etsy shop.
In many of the vintage books I find there is usually a sweet picture on the title page of a child or animal reading a book, these make some of my favorite pendants! I love to read and despite the fact that I cut up books for my art I do dearly love books. I always try to find books that are falling apart, unwanted and unloved so I can give them a new life.
Here’s a few new “reading” pendants, both are currently available in my Etsy shop. And be on the look out for lots more new pendants in the coming weeks, I’ve gotten several great books recently with some wonderful illustrations.
