I'm a bit behind in posting this past weekends projects. On Saturday we had our ASOM meeting hosted by Jean at her beautiful home out in the country. As a group we like to save our big and messy projects for an all day event.
We started out the day learning how to solder with a soldering iron. I had tried this at home with very limited success, it was so much better working out the harder parts of this technique with the other ladies. This is a double sided glass charm.
Afterwards I tried soldering the joints of some hand-shaped copper links. Sandy also brought with her some chunky glass pieces, I used broken one to wrap and solder the top into charm as well.
Carla and I showed how to etch copper and brass. These are my finished pieces from the day.
Beth showed us how to make this quick and easy fairy doll from pipe cleaners and fabric strips for the body, fibers for the hair, wooden bead for the head and a hair scrunchie for the skirt.
Ms. Maria was all over the fairy project and we already started collecting the materials so she can make her own.
