I found these images while searching for my military project.  Cheesy vintage novels.  Some of them are too funny.  I did about 10 different ones, here's a sampling:

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Those are fantastic.  May I ask how big they are?

really cool!  what type of transfering is used for metal like copper?  (if it is not spilling your trick of the trade)

@Virg: I size the images on CorelDraw to about a 1.25" width, so with the copper edge they are a bit wider than that.  Almost 2" long, "Not so Funny" a bit more.  @Mixi: I vacillate about sharing my technique, I don't think anyone else is doing this type of transfer for jewelry right now.  I have 2 artists I'm working with right now, and am hoping to grow a business doing the same for other artists.  However the process no big secret, I just kind of stumbled on it and knowing what my goal was just put the information together.  And learned a lot along the way, which could probably be put to good use by other crafters.  And this site is all about sharing.  25 votes for a tutorial and I'll spill all here.

How much are you charging per pendant?  *ponders buying one when tax return comes in next spring --- I've got to be so dang practical and responsible, why can't I have one affordable treat, too?*

I'm doing a show this weekend and will be offering them at 30, finished on a chain or cord.  I suppose if anyone wanted just the pendant to finish off themselves, it would be less.
