Making Lace Charms

This is what the charms look like after being trimmed to fit the glass, and then wrapped in copper tape.  I wanted to make a nice variety, so there is a range of colors, lace types, and charm sizes to choose from.

And here are the finished charms (click to view larger):
I've written to the winner, Laurie, and wanted to post the picture here, in case it would be clearer for her to view on the blog.

I wonder which one she'll choose??


  1. Very Lovely!!! I have the bird box charm you made. LOVE it!!! I get compliments on it all the time :):)

    1. Thanks, Sandie! So glad you love it. I have another one like it, with those tiny little enameled flowers and nest, in my etsy shop right now.

  2. These are gorgeous and so clever!

    Nice job.

  3. I love 1,2, and 3! However, they are all beautiful!! Great job!

  4. Very lovely lace pendants. I am sure they will be treasured. Hugs Judy

  5. They are lovely and she is one lucky lady. Did you just add extra sauder to form the dots? I do some stained glass work every now and then but nothing as clean or gorgious as this.

    Great prize

    1. Hi Caroline,
      Thanks so much! Yes, after the whole piece is soldered smoothly, I go back in and add little extra daubs of solder to get this effect.

  6. I like the way you add the little dots of solder around the edges. I played around with soldering for a while and have to say it is even harder than it looks - at least for me!
    #3 looks like it is made using that coronation cord technique I blogged about the other day.

  7. Will be hard for the lucky winner to choose, each one is lovely.
    Thanks for stopping by my special valentine post.
    Have a wonderful week.

  8. These ROCK - I am so excited...choosing one from this grouping was incredibly hard...beautiful work on all 5! Happy Tuesday - thank you again! XOXO Tanya

    1. You're welcome!! Charm #5 is on its way to you :-)

  9. Any charm that is chosen is lovely! Congratulations to your winners.

  10. There are lots of who prefer to make use of this on
    account of how easy it's use. After you've installed the entranceway,
    be sure that you can maintain it thus it will forever
    remain in good condition. You can open or close the doorway with just a push
    or touch of your button. It can be accurate to mention the cinematographers these two films, Subroto Mitra, were people who most influenced my decision to turn into a cinematographer.

  12. Such traditional tattoo images were made out of shark
    teeth and also identified the social status of the owner.

    Considered as the first tattoos imprinted unintentionally, tribal tattoo was
    initially used by primitives by trying out fire. I'd moved in the evening difficulties of my past and was starting over. The arrival of recent artists, continuing development of tattoo pigments, along with the improvement from the equipments, made tattoos more fashionable. The Hawaiian tribal tattoos provide the Polynesian cultures that contain basic and curvilinear shapes.
