Charming




Well I have been soldering again! This charm is pendant size, a little over 3/4 an inch wide and 1 inch high not including the leaf trim, which doesn’t look at all gold on the edges. It looks silver but the lighting made it look like that in the photo. It features two images, one on the front and the other on the back.

It's such a pleasure to visit you and see everything new that you are working on. It's always exciting and unique:) The charms are indeed "charming".

The charms are beautiful. I would never dare to use a soldering iron as I'm so clumsy!

Very nice! I love looking at your charms but I don't have any talent for soldering ... I'd prolly set the house on fire!

TFS!

These charms are - well - charming!

I would love to solder like you. But my eyesight is too wonky You really need to be able to aim straight, I guess? You do a beautiful job, Inka.

Also 'Erica' is my favourite stamp of yours atm, so how could I refuse the opportunity to take her under my wing :0) Joanne uses this image beautifully.

Your charms are delightful I'm going to have to try this technique out. I've seen the beautiful Erica on Made by Joanne blog and I think she would make a very useful addition to my growing collection of stamps. Thank you for the opportunity :o)
