Soldered Glass Cabs

Frosted Blue glass soldered pendant id1160970
This pendant is made using the tiffany stained glass method. First grind the side of the glass with a diamond file which will give more traction for the copperfoil to stick to. Then wrap round the glass with the copperfoil and solder with leadfree silver solder.
