Today, I used the Feels Like Spring set to start a glass and solder pendant (like the pendants I created at the Full Spectrum class…sorta). I used two pieces of 1.5” x 1.5” Memory Glass. One one piece I stamped a diamond background in Vibrant Violet Staz-on ink. I stamped the flower shapes on white paper using Dusty Concord and Peeled Paint Distress inks. I punched them out with the Stampin’ Up punch made for the Feels Like Spring set. I arranged the paper flowers between the two pieces of glass and ran copper tape around all four sides. I cut a piece of copper tape in half length-wise with decorative scissors to created a wavy edge and adhered that around the front of the piece. Next I put Blu-Glass flux by Canfield Technologies on all the copper and soldered all copper tape (front and back) with lead-free (important!) solder by Canfield. I had to stop due to technical difficulties with my soldering iron…a big chunk broke out of the tip…not sure how that happened! I’ll finish it once I get a new soldering iron…or steal Bo’s!
Today was also the 3rd Annual World-wide Photo Walk. I participated in Colorado Springs. We walked from the Pioneer Museum to the Old Depot District and back. Here are a few of the photos I took.
