I have been wanting to make some more jewelry for a while, and finally got around to it. These pendants have a piece of reclaimed metal on the back that I cut out of a piece of strapping metal. I filed them down, added a layer of paper out of an old book that I painted and stamped onto and then covered them with a layer of resin and wax.
I usually make short necklaces, as I tend to wear those more than longer ones, but I have been noticing many lovely longer necklaces, so I added long pieces of chain (two types of chain) to these pendants.
This image does not show off the pendant well, as it has much more depth then you can see here. I did want to show that you could wear the necklace long....
or if you wrap the chain twice around your neck before fastening it you can wear it as a short necklace as well.
I have a few other ones in the making that I will hang on a cord instead of a chain.... but I would love to know if you prefer to wear long necklaces or short ones!
