And the Soldering Continues...

I really think I am getting the hang of this soldering stuff. The beveled glass is still tough though. The darn thing just won't hold still.

The soldering kit my mom bought came with little 0.5x1 inch tiles and we weren't sure what to do with them. My idea was to put letters in them because who doesn't like wearing their first initial around their neck? I made one for myself and one for my mom. The first one turned out pretty bad...good thing I made it for myself! The second one turned out much better.

And on the back, I just soldered the whole thing:

The monarch butterfly wing pendant (my new favorite):

with the charms
These are some my mom made using some of my doodles. I really like how they turned out; she has a good eye:

The soldering on these could use some fixin'. I was out of patience when I was finishing them. I'll touch them up on another day, when my soldering skills are fresh.


  1. Emily--these are so wonderful. Will you show me and my daughter how to make these? I'll call you.

    1. I'd love to show you! Just let me know when you'd like to do it.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
