pendant progress!

My friend Heather said to me over lunch yesterday, "I think you should branch out, and make some pendants".

I'd been thinking about this before, enough so that I'd bought some wooden discs and bails a few weeks ago. I just hadn't started on them. Any branching out I'd been attempting before consisted of beads, and those attempts still haven't gone anywhere.

Pendants are a much simpler step to expanding the offerings at the Mirthmarket!

There are two in particular that I really enjoyed making. I just finished listing them. I'd love to hear what you think!

There are two sizes I'm currently working with. The pendant featured above (the silver tree) is about 1.5 inches in diameter, and domed so that the edges are narrow. It's much flatter overall than the smaller pendant below, which is 1 inch in diameter, and more reminiscent of the shape of Mirthmarket's rings.

I believe there will be many more!

You're so talented! I think the Colorful Circle Ring in Turquoise from your shop is my favorite though! I'm going to keep you in mind for one of my Anti-Treasuries at!!!

Oooh! I love the pendants! They are both beautiful! I can't wait to see what others you come up with.
