I’m in a FabUlous Soldering Mood!

I spent my birthday at Terri Brush’s solder class last Sunday and actually left with 2 finished pieces!  Ok, ya know I had to “tweek” them when I got home and then had to find just the right vignette for the photo shoot.  But then we all do that, right?

First up, the FabUlous Fairy Box.  It’s a six-sided box with a mirror bottom.  Now that I know how to create one, there will definitely be more in various sizes added to the collection.


Next, we made this adorable double-sided house complete with roof.  We started out with a paper collage (I tinted mine with Vintage Photo Distress Ink) and then added some bling cuz ya just gotta.  Sorry about the glare, but I think it helps show the bevel in the glass; these pieced are really thick.  The roof and base are double-sided slides with coordinating paper and are soldered to the house.

Everyone received this cute little charm in their class kit.  And then Terri gave me the chandelier crystal necklace as a birthday gift!


There was some major focus going on, so I didn’t get any class photos but you can check out Cheryl’s blog for more.

Next up, a soldered jewelry class with Diana Frey; can’t wait!
