Memorial day ornament

Memorial day soldered ornament

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to solder! So I decided create an ornament using a military picture of my grandfather Miriam Ferguson Ellis for Memorial Day.
When my Mom got a look at it she loved it..... Needless to say I no longer possess it because she took it home. Lol

Supplies used
Vintage photo
K and Company - Americana collection- Glitter Pillow Stickers- Stars
Tim Holtz - Idea-ology - Muse tokens "courageous"
16 gauge silver craft wire
Navy blue rhinestones
Copper foil tape
Lead free solder

    I am having trouble signing in and leaving comments with Blogger this week. I hope this gets through to you okay. I had to use Anonymous instead of my name.
