Rochelle Gaukel

Tuesday Feb 16

[back to quicklinks]
$ 170  

In this workshop you will learn the different techniques and tricks of soldering glass charms. First you will design your glass charms and then we will solder them all up. These different size glass charms will all be a part of the “charmed” bracelet that you will make. Your bracelet can be a reflection of you while you design all your little charms with your favorite colors and papers. This is a good class for the beginner solder student.

Materials Fee $25 paid at beginning of class includes:

Glass, copper tape, papers, book pages, images, vintage papers, rhinestones, buttons, words, glass glitter, small bits and pieces, jump rings, bracelet chain, charms, patina.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

Cookie sheet for your solder station, Soldering iron (WELLER 100 watt), soldering iron stand, spool of lead-free solder (I buy the one from Hobby Lobby with the purple label - 675D), flux for soldering, salamoniac block, E6000 glue, scissors, jewelry pliers set, rag or towel, apron

Optional items:
Any bits and pieces you would want to personalize in your glass charms.
