I had the idea to make a pendant shaped like the lightening bolt on the forehead of David Bowie's "Aladdin Sane" persona. My inspiration came from this, if you aren't familiar  http://i43.tinypic.com/22jate.jpg

Anyhoo, here is the end result!



I rolled some red sculpy and cut it to about the right shape, then made an eyepin out of wire and stuck it in the top.

I made two, but the other one didn't quite look right, so I may make that into a zipper charm or something. We will see.

I didn't want to recharge my dremel, so this got polished with one of those nail buffer blocks, then I used some sparkly enamel paint i have that is supposed to be for cars.

Have another photo for scale!


Shortly after these were baked, the heating element on my oven burned out (literally in a ball of flame) so I'm glad these finished baking first, or my oven's death would have been wasted!
