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.

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’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.

What Time is It?

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

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!

Spring Has Sprung!

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

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.

The first three (bunny, duckling and lamb) are vintage illustrations from a Tasha Tudor book. I love her work!

I recently found an amazing antique book from 1912 about famous poets and I cut out some text from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” for a soldered charm on this mixed media necklace. I also added a book and pen nib charm too.
