Best Friends...Soldered Shadow Box


Need a gift for your best friend?

This wonderful little piece of art is a beautiful unique soldered shadow box.


This piece measures 3" X 2" X ½" deep. The little girls inside the box are raised from the background to give the piece more dimension. Included inside is 2 little typed words that read - friends and 2 words read BFF. I've also added two tiny ivory buttons. I love to give each of my shadow boxes some sparkle, so I've added some yellow German glass glitter.

Each piece will come signed and numbered by me. This shadow box is #10 for this year so watch for more coming soon! ;)

Sweet Memories

A picture of me and my brother and sisters in 1986 at the lakes! I am the oldest, and I am the one on the far right. Growing up we spent pretty much every Sunday at the lakes with my grandma and grandpa Springer. We would swim all day long and try our hand at fishing with grandpa Springer and my great grandpa Lawrence. Those were the days and I have so many sweet memories of those times! Now that I am married and have two kids, I don't get to the lakes much any more. I hope that this summer we can go more and create some sweet memories with our children at the lakes! Do you have any sweet memories of the lakes?

Made For Mom

I always struggle with what to get mom for Mothers Day, it seems that she already has everything! This Mothers Day I wanted to make her something so that it would be a one-of-a-kind gift! A while back a customer wanted me to make her a soldered glass banner with some paper inserts that she had made. I loved the way they turned out, so I thought that I would make one for mom!

The back on the banner...

I am also making one for my mother-in-law, I just need to get it soldered! Off to get it finished...later!

Comic Book Pendants

We all know a few of these types...the Mr. Know-it-all!

A funny pendant to wear on one of your YAY days! :)

This kissing couple pendant I listed on Dawanda the other day! I thought that I would see if I have any luck selling it on there! It seems that etsy is getting so HUGE that things don't get noticed as much as they used to! When I first started selling on etsy, it seemed that right away after listing, an item would have 20+ views. Items now only seem to get about 10 views right after listing it. I guess I'll just have to see what happens on can't hurt to get my stuff out there in another market place!

New Pendants!

I ordered some new glass beads the other day, and I just couldn't wait to get something made from them! These glass beads are about 1.25" round and they are flat on both sides. The other large glass beads that I was using was flat on one side and a round dome on the other side. I was buying my old beads from the floral / wedding section of Hobby Lobby and in each sack would be only a few that I could actually use. Lots of them had scratches, nicks, or were iodized. I am loving the new beads because they have no scratches, nicks and they are non-Iridized. Well are three charms that I made with the new glass.

P.S. If you are interested in purchasing any of these pendants they are available for sale in my etsy shop~
