I started out wanting to make some simple Christmas gifts that I could personalize easily.  I ended up with several necklaces and pendants (or even key chains, they're very workable). 

Unfortunately, I didn't really take step by step pictures.  I ended up with one of the making process:

And one of the finished products (mostly):

As you can see in the finished photo, several of the pendants to be are without any sort of way to attach them to one's person.  The plan is to get some black ribbon and do a simple necklace with those.  The other issue I had, which is hard to see with my light, is that the largest of the pendants changed color from the gloss.  My husband helped with the glossing step, and the largest one somehow got filled with the gloss agent.  End up changing from hot pink to an orange color.  Still looks kinda neat, but not the effect I was going for.

Anyone can be a friend!

These are neat. Love that you used basic items and personalized them. The colour change is always fun...like an experiment that changed in the process.

Ya just can't stop a crafty girl!
