Simply Soldered

Simply Soldered

Simply Soldered: Jewelry, Frames, Boxes, Accents & More! by Cary Edelmann Avery with Beckah Krahula, Opie and Linda O'Brien, Ramona Dolan Ashman, Tom Ashman, Laura Dehart, and Linda Raul.

A Design Originals book about making jewelry and other fun things using solder. This technique is sometimes known as Faux Soldering or Glass Soldering, and can be used with clear or frosted glass slides and many types of foil tape. It has nice instructions for beginners complete with pictures of the tools and supplies required. Now you can make charms of virtually anything - Scrabble tiles, game pieces, pottery shards, coins.

We used to think of soldering as something you do to attach wires to a board, but now we understand what is happening with soldering glass! You are not really soldering things together so much as covering strips of copper foil with solder, which is a nice shiny silvery color because it's mostly tin. Along the way you can solder on a jump ring, of course, to make a charm or pendant, so there is some attaching going on. More importantly, you are creating a nice frame around an object to make it into jewelry.
