Happy Halloween !

Also made this from scrap:

Will make some easy Christmas gifts. I made a moravian star but I don't have a picture of it yet .

Thanks Daisy !

Here is the star. I used some scrap glue chip for my "tester". I'll have to cut better triangles next time !

Those are too cute! Your decorative solder is really great. Love the star on the angel. My 3D projects always get out of shape, your star looks perfect.

Thanks everyone !
@lovesmosaics, that is one of those copper stars. I just tinned it.
I like the angel too. Not bad for just stuff I had on hand. I like the scalloped copper foil. It was easy to put on too !

Thanks Jane, I'd like to make one of those lamps someday.
I just reread this and realized that lovesmosaics was talking about the big star not the tinned star..duh
Well, it is a bit wonky. I just photographed it at the best angle!! Next week I hope to cut some more "truer" triangles and hope that it all is straight.

Hmmmm, I wrote a response yesterday, but don't see it here. I think sometimes I move too fast and don't get past the preview so cancel myself out. ANYWAY, I was saying that I've come back again and again to se these adorable ornaments. I can't figure out which one I like best! How in the world did you figure out the configuration for the star?

The foil adds a really nice touch, doesn't it? I hadn't seen it before. But because I don't do stained glass (yet...) I maybe just hadn't noticed. Anyway, I hope you do more ornaments. What wonderful little gifts for friends and family a the holidays...AND they should sell if you want to do that too.

Also, if you could, I have a couple of quick questions for you over at the crash glass thread. I'd love to hear from you on them.
