My First Attempt at Soldered Jewelery

Well I finally did it! I soldered my first piece of jewelery and I think I am hooked.

Here it is displayed against a piece of my handmade paper. The photo I used was rescued from being burned at the end of a rummage sale and appears to be from the 1920's-1930's era.
It shows 3 cute little Adirondack girls from one of the towns around here in upstate New York.
I chose a simple piece of scrapbook paper for the back and I think it fits the theme perfectly. 
I have to say I am really looking forward to making more of these pendants (of course I haven't burned myself on the soldering iron yet, that may change my mind).
Let's face it I just love making things!!!
These little  ladies are going over to my shop at Etsy!
I hope everyone is having a great evening and that you had fun creating today too.
