This is one of those vintage things I just HAD to have when I found it. It is chunky and heavy, but the chain is lightweight. The pendant is about 4″ long, and the letters and the top detail are actually set into the metal, not sitting on top or printed. I couldn’t resist. Now I have to decide if I am going to keep it or sell it!
Little Altered Shadowbox Collage Pendants August 23, 2007
I made these little 3-D shadowbox necklaces, and I am so happy how they turned out! I started with little metal flip-top frames (which I will be listing as supplies soon), then layered a milagro between a transparency and another image. There is a piece of glass on the front protecting the pieces, and the backs of most of them have a mirror, but a couple have a piece of antique sheet music behind glass. They are hung from a length of faux suede.
Please check them out in my etsy store, along with more.
I promise that tomorrow I’ll get some pics of the cool printing and engraving goodies from that estate sale. I think I’ll also get some shots of my studio.
