I love the domino pendant!  :)I've really been wanting to try that. It looks so cool. I can't tell for sure in the microscope slide pendant picture, is it soldered or is just the copper tape by itself?

I recently made one for a swap as an angel,
here for moonlightbliss. I think this is the best one I've made so far. Grin Sorry, I just started learning not too long ago, so I like to show off. Wink

Mine has the copper foil - no soldering, I quite like copper as a colour and I've never found a copper coloured solder! I love the one you made as an angel!  Cheesy
So glad you liked them all Cotneyroo! I must admit, it was hard to part with them!! *lol*

Of COURSE I did-- they are lovely!!! And I am a copper fan too, as you'd know if you saw my living room.  Wink I think it's my favorite metal color, but you never see jewelry that shade, so this is especially nice. Smiley

One thing you can do if you want to get the nice smooth finish of the solder but still get a copper color is patina the solder. Actually, ooak_diva's stained glass pendant that she sent me gave me the idea as it was patina'd. Check out the craft store. There are a couple different ways of changing the look. You can also try something like gold leafing but with copper. One I've tried is you apply this adhesive type liquid and wait for it to dry and then there's a really thin copper foil and you rub it over the surface and it leaves the copper. Just an idea you can take it or leave it. I make them both ways too. I also sometimes use aluminum tape for a different look.

I received from lafemmefatale yesterday!  She sent me some spanish loteria cards, a pair of dangly earrings, and a button coin purse (really, it's covered with buttons)!   I will post pics up soon.  I've already loaded change in the coin purse and toted it to the library to make some copies.

Thanks lafemmefatale!!!!!!!
NP.  I'm glad you liked it!!
