Glass House

My sister, Tricia is still in town. We have been having a blast and soldering up a storm. After having made quite a few soldered charms we decided to each make a glass house. This ended up being a far larger challenge than we both had anticipated. We were deciding between making a house to be used as a tea light holder or a box. We decided on the box as it was something we both figured we would actually use. We had no patterns or pictures to go by so we had to figure it out by ourselves. Not a big deal really, but we both have never done anything like this before and
had nothing to use as a reference. While we both used virtually the same images, it was surprising how different each of our houses came out. However, I only have photos of the house I made to show. We both have decided that this is the last Glass House we will ever make, but we also agreed that it was indeed a good learning experience. Dimensions are 5 1/2" X 4" by 5 1/2 " tall.

You did a really god job on the house! Especially since you didn't have a pattern. I solder and it can be challenging. It's all about the right tools. Like the $40 glass cutter. Makes a difference! Thanks for sharing.
