Soldered Glass Necklaces

This is probably my last new design for 2013:  Soldered Glass Necklaces.  I have been wanting to add some variety to the techniques and tools I use, so I became reacquainted with the soldering iron I already had.  I soldered pendants from faceted cut glass I found from a stained glass shop to hang from necklaces of aged rhinestone, vintage brass, and old glass beads.  I also put some antique lace under glass to add some romance to the pieces.  Hanging below each piece are vintage key, sacred medals, old Lucite, brass hearts, and antique Swarovski crystal.  I purposely darkened the soldered edges to give it a true stained glass window effect.  I love the end result:

I hope you are enjoying this special time of the year when we gratefully remember Christ's birth.  I'll be doing private Trunk Shows, and the last public show will be the Cincinnati Holiday Art Show this Saturday from 10-4.  Hope to see you there!
