This is the pendant I am most proud of because I created the image from scratch. Plus I got such great detail in such a tiny space (32 mm). This is an elf owl in a saguaro cactus, front and back. I made if for an 11 year old who is really into the guardians of ga'hoole. I am really trying to prefect my etching, I am self taught from books and just making it up as I go along. So comment and critiques are welcome.

That really is beautifully done. It's amazing how much expression the owl's face has in such a tiny image. Your design is exactly right for the size. And the etching is so sharp! I'd forgotten about elf owls - I don't think I've seen a picture of one since I was a child. thanks for this!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

This is beautiful! I love the detail and the fact that it is double-sided, it makes a very special pendant.

Love the cactus! It's making me nostalgic for the west coast.  Sniff.
