I've been playing around with some different shaped glass slides for pendants. I've also been reworking vintage jewelry to hang them from. Some of the old junk jewelry I find is awesome, and worth bringing some life back into it. The back is a textured piece of glass which is pearly purple. I've also been trying to solder in some different materials. Soldering isn't the easiest material I've ever worked with. Solder and I have a love / hate relationship. I love what it can do, but it's fussy to work with and stinky. I've burnt myself countless times and almost burnt a hole clear through my work table. Don't tell my husband. ;-)

Hello Cindy!
I was shown your blog by a wonderful lady named Zura Ledbetter (blog: Creative Clown).

I just wanted to say that I LOVE your work! Wonderful! I love the color! whew... ; )

Your latest pendant is great. I've been wanting to try my hand at soldering too.

I also see that you're from the Bay Area! I'm from Newark/Fremont, though I've moved to Modesto now.

Lovely work Cindy!
