Some have a coppery patina, some a black patina, most I left silver. Jackie also sent a silk hand embroidered cloth from Japan. She told me to cut it up. It took me a couple days to work up the nerve to cut into the fabric. This picture doesn't do the hand work justice. Once Jackie has these, she'll do much better with photographing them. Until then - here's a peek:

Soldering Vintage Lace
My friend, Jackie the Peony Princess of Bliss Farm Antiques, is a collector. She has the most beautiful shop and acreage and eye for all things beautiful, especially children. She shops the world to fill her shop with beautiful things. Recently she asked me to make soldered glass pendants out of some handmade vintage lace she bought in France. (she knows I will attempt to solder anything...) They turned out beautiful.
