Double Buttons

Well, I had fun today playing around with my new toys! I was able to cut 20 1"x1" squares!! all the same.. it's wonderful! some folks will think I'm crazy, but it really is great to finally have some precision in the glass cutting department. The only thing I'm frustrated with is I can score a perfect circle now... I just can't score the reliefs and get it out!!AGGH.. I gave up on trying to cut any circles, I made some 'double' glass buttons (pre-made )today with my new soldering iron.
As you can see, two 1/2" and one 1" . The fronts say "love" "yes" and "I'm not hard to please." and then you have a reverse sides that say "you" "no" and "I just like things done my way."
I'm really pleased how they turned out. I hope you can see the sides, they are smooth but you can see a seam here and there... I hate that! I try to add more solder but then it gets lumpy! any suggestions?

The below larger one really is smooth! With the smaller solder iron the jump ring was a lot easier to apply. Well, thank you to everyone who voted on my poll. I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Talk to ya soon!
