3 Microscopic Slide Pendants-#31, 32, 33 in a CADWCA series

Hi all my wonderful, crazy, hilarious, SWEET and lovely peeps in Bloggy Land.  I was crazy for the glass slide pendants when they all hit the stores and since I had done some stained glass a LONG time ago, I found my old soldering iron and supplies and have made quite a few. (SANTA, my iron is 30+ years old and this would be a Nice present.
I decided to make some Christmas ones for the Daughter and Myself.  I will share a secret..... get online and type in Microscopic Lab Slides.  These are what I use..CHEAP!!! I have a whole box of 200 for 7.96 and that was about 3 years ago.  But beware, these are thin and break easily, especially when you are burnishing the edges that have the copper foil on them.  Pop, Crack, Break...don't press down unless it's on a flat surface...and the hardest part is getting the jump ring on the top of the pendant for me.  A little trying in the patience department, but I love them once they are done. 
 Okay, here they are and if you have any questions, give me a ring on the email.

I printed off a vintage Santa, glittered him...of COURSE! Remember the saying?? "Glitter makes EVERYTHING, BETTER!!
Put on my words and used a Snowman punch and  inked letters spelling, "Snow" on the backs. 
Here they are all Foiled up with the Copper tape.  Sandwich your two Papers between 2 slides and squeeze really hard when your applying your copper tape.
Here the 3 are after Soldering and attached with a silver ball chain!
 Sorry for the glare..Santa are you listening?? This lady needs a new camera please!!!!
Many Blessings to all of you...

I'll be at the PARTIES, if you wanna find me today...
