Designs by Leah Best

I found this great little shop on Artfire that does the neatest soldered glass pendants. DesignsByLeahBest. My favorite is the white rabbit but her entire series on Alice in Wonderland is stunning! And she has several vintage feel pendants that are just lovely! I have tried my hand at this type of pendant and it isn't as simple as it might seem. Even though the photos are between glass you have to be VERY careful not to let things get too hot as it will discolor the pictures and ruin your pendant. All this while handling a hot torch and melting the solder evenly so that it all holds together. Go and check out her shop, her items are a perfect gift for Christmas or just because you want to treat yourself!

Hi Silver River Jewelry,
I followed your Plurk comment to your Artfire store, and the rest is history! Well, my birthday is in a few weeks, so I guess I'm celebrating early! Anyway, beautiful things,
