Tiffany method jewellery

It's been such a long time since I have written anything here on my blog
life has been so hectic but I must say most of it has been fun especially running after and playing with my almost 4 year old grandson ..

   Today I would like to show you all a new passion of mine it's called the tiffany method also used in vitro .. It's a method using copper foil and tin solder the difference is when making jewellery we have to use a lead free tin solder ..
 
   This method can be used to make so many amazing designs I really love using it  ... I take the copper foil and wrap it around whatever I want glass.. stones metal, flux then using a soldering iron melt the lead free solder over the foil adding wire if I wish the design  to become more interesting .. below are a few photos of some of my designs using this method ..you can also find them all in my etsy shop !!Helen's Handmade Creations
