My hubby says it's hard to buy jewelry for me, so he has taken to just buying the pendants for me, and letting me design a necklace around them!  Here are the latest 3, all from pendants I had first.   I made each of them this week.



The first pendant is from Blue Moon (found at craft stores); it's metal and enamel with tiny rhinestones.  I used chain to keep the metal look, and bent a mismatched post earring (a dragonfly) into a little charm to hang at the top of it.



The next pendant is black and irridescent Dichroic glass, purchased from: www.runonthesun.ets y.com


The last pendant is gorgeous pink Dichroic glass, from www.meran.etsy.com (she's a brand new seller, with high quality work!).



I hadn't made any necklaces in a LONG time, so it's great to work on them again!  They are just for me, too. Smiley  I find it hard to create for others sometimes, since I dont' know what they REALLY would like.  Anyone else have that problem?  Oh well.

Thanks for looking!

What a sweet guy you have. Smiley I love the black and iridescent one the most. The pink one is my second favorite. Lovely.

Thanks guys!  He's a keeper, that's for sure.  I think it probably says more about me being hard to buy for though... Sad  Oh well.
