In this workshop you will learn the techniques and tricks of soldering glass charms. First part is designing the charms and then we will solder out hearts out. You will learn how to solder those charming scallop bumps, as well as how to antique the shiny silver to an aged patina look.
We will be using rhinestones, buttons, glass glitter, vintage book pages, images, rubber stamps for stamping words, etc. The list goes on and on of what you can make inside your charms.
When you discover how easy these are to make, you will want to sit down and make hundreds more! This workshop is a great class for the beginner solder student.
