A New Hobby

As if I need a new hobby...but I just can't resist learning something new. Besides, these pendants are a small, fast and easy way to solder with glass. The first steps are to prepare the two-sided artwork and glass wrapping with copper foil. Then the soldering begins which requires the right amount of heat combined with techniques I learned from Sheryl to build up the solder. I assembled several tonight ready to be soldered together and added beads to my completed knitting skeleton. She's a happy knitter!
