Soldered Memory Glass Pendants

Pinterest


Today I’m teaching soldered memory glass pendants at Grand River Beads today– it’s going to be so much fun. This is my first time teaching the class- and it’s a full house- so I’m excited and a little nervous.

We’ll be using discarded (unused) microscope slides today that we’ll cut in half. They will make a 1 by 1.5 inch charms, that will be perfect for necklaces and bracelets. (I use microscope glass because it’s MUCH thinner and stronger any window pane glass.)

Soldering isn’t that hard, and I really love the finished product. But it CAN be tricky. My best hint: clean your tip often and use more flux if things get gummy!

If soldering glass pendants interests you check out this tutorial by Lapidary Journal (now Jewelry Arts Magazine.) They do a good job with the step-by-steps…..but of course, it’s nicer to have someone to teach you in person.

Happy Crafting Y’all!
