So I've never been that good at making jewelry, but after seeing smittenheart's domino pendants and falling in Looooove with them, I decided to give them a try. They looked pretty easy. No complicated beading and bending of wire and such.

I used a collage of images from a powerboat ad in a magazine, of all things (yeah, I know... not very boaty!). This was my result:

You did a great job on this pendant! It's fabulous! Would you mind telling where you find the dominoes and what glue and selaer you used? I'm thinking of making a little photo dominoe. Thanks!

I got a tin of 25 Disney Princess Dominos at Big Lots for $2.00. I used a regular glue stick to put the pictures onto the domino, then mod-podged the pictures several coats, then I used a couple coats of Deco Art Triple Thick Brilliant Gloss Glaze. If the glaze is layered thickly, you need to let it sit for several days to harden well. I'm sure there is a better method, but I was kind of making due with what materials I had on hand.

The Mod-podge was important - the first one I made, when the gloss glaze hit, soaked through the paper and made the words on the reverse side show through.





And thanks, everyone, for the nice comments!
