Project Name: Wizard of Oz pendant
Description: This will be a raffle prize!
Yay, I started raffle prizes early this season, whereas last season I just squeaked in under the wire.
This pendant features a miniature Wizard of Oz book and 12 "emeralds". Of course, 12 is a multiple of three.
Fun Fact about the Wizard of Oz (and this is just copied and pasted, folks, I'm not this smart): Lyman Frank Baum wrote 14 books that are considered part of the series of royal histories of the lands and peoples of Oz. The books that he contributed to the series are entitled:
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz [aka The Wizard of Oz], 1900
The Marvelous Land of Oz, 1904
Ozma of Oz, 1907
Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz, 1908
The Road to Oz, 1909
The Emerald City, 1910
The Patchwork Girl of Oz, 1913
Tik-Tok of Oz, 1914
The Scarecrow of Oz, 1915
Rinkitink in Oz, 1916
The Lost Princess of Oz, 1917
The Tin Woodsman of Oz, 1918
The Magic of Oz, 1919, posthumously published
Glinda of Oz, 1920, posthumously published.
Baum also wrote The Woggle-Bug Book, 1905; and Little Wizard Stories of Oz, 1913. But they aren't considered part of the Famous Forty Royal Histories that mainly were published by Reilly & Lee.
I was fortunate that my school library had all of these titles and I believe I have read all of these, except the Little Wizard Stories. I don't remember a whole lot coz I was in 5th grade... maybe it's time for another visit! Thank you, Google!

Project Name: Game of Thrones pendant

When I made this, I honestly wasn't sure what prompt it was going to fit, until later.... Making the miniature book for the pendant was pretty straightforward but the dagger... there's where the "determination" factor comes in to play for this prompt. First I tried making it with the foil tape and a toggle from a clasp-- nope. Then tried making a twisted wire grip. Three times. Nope, nope, nope. Finally in desperation I opened my charm box, thinking maybe I'd have a crown in there. I had 2 different ones, neither of which were small enough to create the desired effect. Then my eye fell upon a key charm and I wondered if I could cut certain parts off of it to create the handle I needed. I figured it was a long shot, but it worked! Hooray! And it was all from my stash! It Was On Clearance
