Tutorial for Layered Stamping Necklace. This is not a simple tutorial, but what is really interesting is that Desiree Bigard (who makes and sells Gothic, Victorian and fantasy peices at Peacock Tres Chic) glues all her manufactured brass and sterling plated brass stampings and filigree pieces together, and doesn’t solder them together. She also discusses her favorite glue etc… Tutorial at Peacock tres Chic here. A really good post about her work with more photos can be found at The Beading Gem’s Journal here.
