On My Table…
I’ve been playing around in my studio, this week and have really enjoyed working on a few soldering projects. Soldering is something I kinda put on the back burner for a bit while creating my last two books. I get so much satisfaction from creating items I have visualized in my head. I’m a true assemblage girl at heart. The house above has an adorable vintage Valentine image inside and is covered with a layer of resin. The vintage flocked flowers are a beautiful shade of pale pink and one is accented with the words “Love is”. I added two small rhinestones from a vintage necklace to the key. So I’m sure you figured it out that the title of this pendant will be “Love is Key”. I’m going to drill a hole in the top to allow for a beautiful rhinestone vintage earring teardrop to dangle down.
The heart pendant is another soldering piece that has been fun to work on. I soldered the heart shape, added embossing powders then sealed a scanned vintage Valentine image on top. I attached some red iridescent rhinestone trim around the outer edge and added a layer of resin. I love how the resin pops the colors and intensifies the glitter embossing powder.
I finally finished my Steampunk Bird pendant and listed it on Etsy. It’s certainly a unique piece and will make a statement when worn. It’s a bit pricey but there will never be another one like it, it took several days to make and I truly love it!
If you are wanting to give resin and soldering a try please feel free to email me or post questions in the comment section. These are really fun techniques that used to scare me to death to even think of trying. Just remember “An Artist Cannot Fail”.
