Soldered Christmas Ornaments

Recently, I informed you that I have picked up soldering again after years of being away from this medium.  I wanted to deviate a bit from jewelry this time around, so I made some soldered Christmas ornaments.  Both the front back of the ornaments depict Christmas themes so they will look pretty hanging from the tree when viewed in any direction.  Here are a few of them:

Retro 30's Ornament - Front

Retro 30's Ornament - Back

Santa Ornament - Front

Santa Ornament - Back

Victorian Girl Ornament - Front


Victorian Woman Ornament - Front

Snow Scene Ornament - Front
Singing Family Ornament - Front
Singing Family Ornament - Back
 
For added sparkle and interest, prior to soldering, I embellished several of the images with glitter glue. The solder was also colorized and a Christmas charm was attached to the front of the ornament. A complementary ribbon hanger was added for the final finish.

All of the ornaments are being listed on Etsy this week. You can easily get to my Etsy shop by clicking the "shop" link header at the top of this page or on the link in this paragraph.

Soldered Jewelry Designs


It seems like a million years since I have posted anything artsy on my blog.  For those of you who have stuck it out with me - thank you so much!

I recently got the itch to solder jewelry again. The last time I soldered was about 8 or 9 years ago. For some reason, I just decided to pick it up again.  Of course, being the kind of person I am, I don't just solder jewelry, I have to embellish my pieces with paint, filigree, rhinestones, rhinestone chain, stampings and other decorative details.  I have been attracted to bling ever since I was a little girl.

This evening, I posted several of my new soldered jewelry pieces to my Etsy shop.
While most of the pendants dangle from ball chain necklaces, others (which I am still working on) will have more extravagant beaded chains.  (Please stay tuned for those.)  Without further adieu, here are some of my newest designs:

Soldered pendant with painted/sanded filigree and rhinestones.

Three versions of blinged-out Our Lady of Guadalupe pendants.

Virgin Mary with rhinestone chain and painted/sanded filigree stamping.

Rhinestone chain and metal stamping Virgin Mary necklace.

Rhinestone chain and painted/sanded filigree stampings.

A collection of soldered and painted pendants.

Filigree-embellished soldered glass pendants.

Simply painted soldered pendant.

Please check out my Etsy shop to look at all of the new designs. Of course, you can also follow me on Instagram, where I share my work and travel experiences on a pretty regular basis.
