Some New Work

I have finally completed some of the initial pendants for my sisters baby shower favors in addition to some other pendants I had made. I started sweating bullets. I couldn't get the jump rings to solder to the pendants. I bought some jewelry wire, made some decorative hooks and thank goodness they attached to the solder.

The initial pendants have a pink / heart / floral theme. I've just been working with some coordinating scrapbook papers, some mini-heart stamps and monogram rub-ons.

I've always wanted to make these pendants. I took a stained glass class when I was pregnant with Brandon (over 4 years ago) and never finished it. I've been trying to learn by reading books, magazines and on-line forums. Belle Armoire and Legacy did articles on the collaged pendants when I took my class. I am so glad I finally took the plunge and FINALLY bought the microscope slides.
