Eiffel Charm Necklace
Over the weekend I bought a new soldering iron and did a little more experimenting with making the soldered charms. The new soldering iron made a huge difference! I'm getting a little better at it, but certainly don't have the technique mastered. Yet!
One of the fun parts of doing these charms is that you can design something different for both sides. One one side I put part of a postcard of the Eiffel Tower.
On the other side some red and blue fabric. I added a little curl of wire at the bottom and hung some beads. Kind of fun. This is made from a microscope slide and is about 3 inches long. I wonder if it will be easy to crack the glass on the slide. We'll see......
