How to Use Copper Foil on Soldered Glass Jewelry

commentsHere is good closeup video of wrapping a glass pendant in copper tape before soldering. I show you how to wrap the adhesive backed copper tape around the microscope slide glass and burnish it down, before you get out the soldering iron to make the metal frame.  This video is from my latest (and I think) best series on the topic of making soldered glass pendants.  The “Close Up” series is just that: lots of  zoomed-in, how-to footage.

There is a prequel video to this one, in which I discuss exactly what width and brand of copper foil I use on my soldered glass jewelry .

Did you try it yet? Let me know in the comments below!

    Thank you so much for making this video. I just came home with a new soldering iron, solder and flux , but no copper tape. The videos are just what I needed to get what else I need to buy. Sincerely ,Judy

      Judy, I’m happy the video was helpful to you. Thank you for taking the time to say so! I hope you have fun with it, and don’t give up if the first few pieces come out sloppy. It takes a little practice before you get the hang of it! Mimi
