    Soldered glass charm supplies

    Does anyone know where I can get some good supplies for making soldered glass charms like these http://www.backyardcards-gifts.com/Schedule.htm ? I am about to start my summer break and would like to begin experimenting with making these.

    Science surplus [I think that's the name] has the microscope slides for good prices. I got a box from them.

    Radio Shack is your best bet for a good soldering iron. They have the tips and everything.

    Lead Free solder can be found online as well, possibly even at the radio shack site. Harbor frieght used to have a big roll of it for 5 bucks.

    For the pictures, old magazines work pretty well. Just make sure any copywrited images are cropped in such a way that you cannot tell thats what they once were.

    I use copper foil tape to sandwich the glass together, and mine are jewelry. Granted, I'm the only one that has worn them yet, but they stay together. There is a guitar making parts website that has the best price on the copper tape. I'll try and find it for you if you like.
    The solder sticks to it just fine.
