I’ve actually accomplished something…

Here are some soldering projects I’ve been working on.

This piece is for a round robin charm swap. I love the look of the solder after putting the patina solution on it… looks so tarnished and old. I think I’ll add some words to the wrist (or maybe kanji character like I have on my wrist). I like the simplicity of this piece. I just am not sure about what type of chain to attach it to. I also need to find out where to get some more little hands.

Here are the charms I made for the black & white charm swap.

Here is a charm I’ve been planning on soldering together since May. It’s a little tin fish mold full of little shells and stuff. I also used the patina solution on the soldering so it wasn’t so bright. I love  it and can’t wait to wear it at Art & Soul (By the Sea) and ArtFest (Sea Monster) since both themes are related to the sea.

Since I can find some of the things I need in my art studio, it’s not so frustrating to work in there. It took a fraction of the time it normally would have because of my disorganization and distractions. I can’t wait to be completely done with my room makeover. I know I will be much more productive. And maybe someday I’ll be able to sell some of my work online!

  1. Love them all! Especially the little hand for the round robin…I just posted photos of mine on my blog today, too: http://laurelsteven.blogspot.com/
    …and I’m about 1/3 of the way done on my black and white ones….

  2. Love the hand! What is it made of?
    The fish will be perfect for A&S.

  3. I love them all, but specially the hand. Now where in the world did you find that little treasure, and you sure found the perfect way of enhancing it.

  5. HA! I just have to be different. I really like the fish!

    BTW, you were a lot more organized than me before you started organizing. I will have to bow down, put flowers at your feet and crown you the Organization Queen, when you have finished.


  6. I really love all the pieces you have created! I though the back and white ones were covered in polymer clay canes at first, then I noticed they were rolled pieces of paper. The last one is interesting too with all the found objects… very creative!
