my charm story

Just over 10 years ago I taught myself how to solder. I wanted to create something with meaning, a memory, word, quote, photo clipped and tucked behind glass with a soldered edge.  I don't think I really knew it at the time but I was actually doing it to keep someone I held dearest in the world close to me.  My mum had passed away very suddenly a few years before and sadly we didn't have a lot of photos of her as a little girl except for this one and so this journey of making special one-off pieces of art began.
