Water Necklace by johannachambers Water Necklace by johannachambers
My second entry for the Jewelry Club's :iconjewelryclub: elements contest.

Various pictures between plain glass, some colored glass, and lead-free jewelry solder. I was so thrilled to learn that I could buy lead-free solder!

Used various stock images by:

I love the look of this, though I have to wonder if it would be too heavy to wear?

Best use of stock images I've seen so far : D
Nice concept and well done too. I like how the texture of the solder works with the water theme.

I love this, I make stained glass myself, and I would love to know where you got lead free solder! I am making a crown right now, but I am using 60/40 solder, which for a crown that sits on the hair is ok, but I would love to not have to worry about lead!
great job, I voted for it!

I'd wanted to make this for ages, but I thought I'd better not cuz of the lead in solder. Then I wondered if lead-free solder was possible, and googled it, and sure enough there it was. It's more expensive than the regular leaded kind, and has a small percentage of actual silver. I think the amount of silver might vary by brand. [link]
There also seems to be lead-free solders for more practical (or electrical?) purposes, but there are also types made specifically for jewelry. There are a number of websites that sell it, I actually got a better deal on it just through ebay. :D Thanks so much for the vote! :hug:

This is really awesome. I love the blue and the different sized pieces and the whole flow of it all. Where did you get those frames?

johannachambers Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2008
Thanks! And thanks for the fave on this also. :hug: It's actually not little frames; it is just little cut glass rectangles with a picture between and then I soldered the edges stained-glass style. :D

Love the way this one is layed out and put together. It looks like something that would be draped around a store mannequin and selling for hundreds of dollars.
Great job.

Thanks so much! I wish it would drape better, actually-- it is a bit too long with the chain and rather heavy! :D
