I think I have an idea... but I was wondering if there is a size limit?

Still lots of pendents wending their way across the continent - please don't forget to post pics of your little beauties as you receive them so we can all admire them!

... sorry - stupid bout of nasty bronchitis when I was 22 made me sensitive to cat fur and it's been getting worse since - but unless someone crafts something with the craft fur and I breathe it in or rub myself with it, it should have been OK Sad

Regardless, I am happy to be crafting for either partner - I just hope I am worthy!

34  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A bouquet of leather flowers... necklace and pendents... on: July 11, 2014 05:08:17 PM
I am organizing the pendent swap right now and it was in the process of making my contribution for that swap that I came up with these.



This is a flower necklace I made myself.  It is made of three of the leather flower pendents strung together on aged copper chain with lobster clasps on either end of the flower piece - that way I can take it off and put it on a shorter chain for a bracelet, or as a shawl clasp, or to put in my hair - I like multi purpose.

It came about after making these...











I have some great leather scraps that I love the colour of, but are too thin for some of the other projects I like to do with leather.  I die cut them with a flower die I have, and layered the pieces together.  I felt just doing that was a bit too flat, so I cut some brass and copper discs, and dapped them to give them a bowl shape.  I punched holes through them all in the centre.  I layered the flower pieces between two pieces of dapped metal, and attached them with a teeny tiny screw and nut.  After trimming the screw post, I riveted the end a bit to make sure it is secure.  I added an eyelet on one petal to add jump rings.  Two eyelets on petals for the flower necklace.

I love the juxtaposition of the metal on the leather - the industrial on the natural (the metal/screw/nuts in a flower).

I especially love having another use for my stash of leather scraps!

Here are some of my blogs posts for some of the details and more pics...

I received from dtfba - and I love it - it is just lovely...

I love the antiqued metal look, the fairy tale theme, and hearts - perfect!



Thanks for the great pendent!

OK - I have updated status again, and started feedback.  Please check the first post in the gallery and make sure I have been accurate with your status.  This is kind of like keeping track of 20 some odd mini swaps, so please send me a PM if your status is not correct.  Don't forget to let me know which group you're referring to when updating me about receiving - that helps me a lot!  Thanks!

Don't apologize, I certainly did not mind and wasn't worried at all Smiley  It must have flown here on a jet plane because it arrived so fast! 

Besides, all great things are worth the wait!

There you go - you helped me decide - she's a bird nerd too and therefore I must give it to her now!
