Miss. Cellaneous said they were soldered. Have to ask her for details though.

The glass ornaments are indeed soldered. I got the beveled glass pieces at a local stained glass store and soldered them together with images sandwiched in between. I got most of my soldering equipment at Hobby Lobby using their weekly 40% off coupons. All the stuff you need is located in their stained glass section.

There are a couple of tutorials on soldering here on craftster, but I found some great tips from a book called Pretty Little Things written by Sally Jean Alexander. She sells her goods on her site, sallyjean.com. I found her book at my library.

Since I am new to soldering, I am still having some ups and downs. However, I will say that this is one of the most fun craft methods that I have attempted. I don't know what it is about potential danger (700 degree soldering iron) that makes it more amusing.   Grin  Be careful, though. There are certain types of solder that can't be used due to their lead content. Used lead free or silver.

Glad you all liked the pieces!

Love, love, love the tea ornaments. So clever to remember to put the year on there. As I was putting ornaments on my tree I realized I should have done that on the ones that I sent since I always seem to look at all the years on all my ornaments. I seem to mark time by the ornaments I add to my collection each year.
All the ornaments have been fantastic. This swap has really done a lot to kick of my holiday spirit. Thanks everyone!!

I received from sundayafternoonhousewife, and as her pictures show, they are FANTASTIC!

My boyfriend had a medical emergency last week, so things have been a little crazy.  Luckily I was able to finally get the crafty goodies into the mail yesterday.  So sorry to be late  - hope sundayafternoonhousewife enjoys the random package of goodies.  I'm feeling that my crafty skills are far below what the rest of you have turned out!!

All of these pictures have put me back in the holiday spirit though - thanks to all!!

Miss. Cellaneous I do agree that soldering can be a bit tricky at first!  I do stained glass and I'm still not confident about my soldering!!!  Use PLENTY of Flux and let the iron do all the work (not the solder). 

Your idea for the ornament was brilliant!!! You did a wonderful job!!
