Judy's Birthday

Still no baby but my solder finally arrived and I made my first charm for my sister’s birthday on the 5th. I really lucked out as my daughter-in-laws mother is here (also on baby watch) and I discovered her hobby is making stain glass windows. She gave me some pointers but the reason it looks a little rough is that she made me do it all by myself. Here is a little tip she gave me that I thought I would pass on, you can solder on anything metal and then paint it with solder. This is what I did on this. The front of the pendant is a picture of my sister and me when we were little and the back has my boys when they were young.
