Copper Quotes

Tracey gave me 3 awesome quotes to put into a necklace. I tried to keep them as small and organic as I could. This is great advice for EVERYONE! And the necklace turned out really fun! That big black dot on the large quote is a reflection of my camera. I just don't know how to avoid that spot!

I love a girl who loves her mom!

Funky bracelet with copper charms for Jen's mom. This was a great soldering experiment. I sweat-soldered the copper heart onto the silver heart, then couldn't bear to drill a hole through them, my drill would undoubtedly jump around and the hole would be off-center. So, I soldered a loop to the back to make a place for the jump ring. I LOVE the warmth of the copper on this bracelet. Just a little detail view.

Silver on silver heart charm for Jen's mother-in-law. This necklace is 24" long and it lays nicely.

Linda liked Caitlin's experiment, and had her own giant cz jiggling around in her bag of treasures. She asked me to make this pendant is for her daughter-in-law for Mother's Day. What a great mother-in-law! Another great experiment that I enjoyed immensely!

Soldering experiments. These were fun. The "give" pendant is for my own mom. The back says "Scatter Sunshine."
