Tiffany Technique Soldered Chandelier Crystal Pendant

I made this pendant necklace using the Tiffany technique of soldering to this old crystal chandelier.  I used lead free solder, added embellishments, filed for smoothness and a patina which achieves an aged pewter or rustic look.  The pendant hangs from a recycled silk sari ribbon and this one-of-a-kind lovely has been gifted.

Hot Off The Bench - New Soft Solder/tinned Pendants

It's been some time since I've worked with my soldering I got to work.  I soldered an old chandelier crystal, created a flowering tree and 2 abstract garden pendants.  They have the look of pewter that I like.  All they need now are chains/ribbons and then I'll listed them in our Etsy Store.

Black Beaded Choker Necklace

As with all fashion, chokers seem to come and go.  It's a fashion accessory that has been popular again for a few years now, but shorter and tighter to the neck seems to be the current trend. This 16" choker would fall at the base of the neck on most people.  Whether dressing for work or to dress up your jeans this short necklace would be a beautiful addition to your jewelry wardrobe.  I've used jet black czech glass beads and accented with bali sterling silver charm fans. I've listed this necklace in our Etsy Store .
