(That crazy Tree of Life Pendant girl)

I know a lot of people have made these but I'm just trying my hand at them and having fun! I picked up this amazing Chiyogami paper in the Mitsukoshi Department Store in the Japan Pavilion in Epcot. Everything in the store is actually from Japan. They are an actual department store in Japan as well. The paper has such lovely metallic accents; like a pure gold glitter.

Here's the first two I just finished.

The first features an adorable Geisha girl in a pink flowered robe. It is 3/4" square with a silver-plated Aanraku bail.




The second features a Moon Rabbit with a red flower. It is 7/8" square also with a silver-plated Aanraku bail.


The paper was just so beautiful that when I saw it in Japan, I had to buy it and make some pendants.

As always, feedback welcome!
