Product Description

On Wings of LoveThe story of Cupid’s life is one of myth and legend dating back to ancient Greece and Rome… in Wings of Love, we will be creating a beautiful and unique pendant featuring an elegantly detailed casted silver-plated winged Cherub.  I am so excited to share how to solder and “gild” Sandra Evertson’s Relics and Artifacts® Resin Heart blanks.

We will be securely soldering all embellishments; casted silver plate Cherub, embossed banding, charms, medals, *vintage elements and *rhinestone jewels, stamped word. The pendant is your design and can be created using a spiritual theme, or a theme of your choosing (french, steampunk, lot’s of bling)!

  • Students will work with Relics & Artifacts® heart blank for prep of soldering.
  • Students will use a soldering iron to apply solder and add “gilded” technique to the front & back of heart.
  • Students will securely attach embellishments and banding while soldering.
  • Students will create a wire bail and connector.

Debbie AndersonAbout Debby Anderson:
Debby Anderson is a self-taught jewelry designer who works out of her home studio in San Francisco, California. Debby began her design career approximately 6 years ago with the creation of her jewelry business, Romancing the Bling.

Debby’s beautiful, ornate and handcrafted jewelry has been published in the prestigious Jewelry Affaire magazine and has also been featured on the nationally televised Today Show.

Vintage Romance by Debby Anderson is her product line which sold in Michaels Stores. Debby teaches jewelry workshops in the San Francisco Bay Area and within the US. Her intricate and distinctly feminine designs are influenced by the various time periods ranging from the Renaissance era through the Art Deco era. Debby’s designs incorporate religious icons, whimsical French collages, inspirational quotes and sparkling beads and stunning rhinestones. Most jewelry components begin as objects found at flea markets, antique shops or rummage sales. These vintage pieces are then repurposed by altering the finish, adding paint, deconstructing or combining the pieces in unique configurations. All of Debby’s creations are original and developed organically without sketches or the use of computer-aided design programs. Each piece takes on its own identity as Debby works through each step of her designs, therefore telling a continuous story with sophisticated elegance. Her designs are never complete until the back is as pretty as the front.
