Star pendant

Today I'll show my lovely 'star pendant' necklace. The necklace is made from copper sheet, with a cut star of brass on top. The two were soldered together using 'sweat soldering'. This means that i put the two pieces together with the solder and flux sandwiched between. As the two pieces got hot with the torch, it melted the solder between them to put them together. A simple concept, but a good one :).

Here underneath, you can see where i stamped 'Tu lui sais depuis toujours'. This is a quote from my favorite movie ever, Amélie. It means 'You've known them forever'. A lovely quote from a lovely movie.

I LOVE this one. Anything that has text appeals to me and I like the contrast of the two colours. (Makes me want to do some jewelery).
