Oooh I love the glass bird one, but they're all gorgeous!

It's actually resin if you are talking about the black birds on a branch with the swirled blue through it - wish I knew how to work with glass!

Thats even cooler! I love using resin but wouldn't have known that's what it was unless I saw it in person. What is the bird made of? (sticker, plastic, drawn??) If you don't mind me asking.

It is a new thing I have been doing this year.  If you have access to a laser printer or a photocopier, print the image you want onto tissue paper.  Untreated paper absorbs resin and becomes translucent.  A single layer of white tissue paper essentially becomes almost clear when embedded in wet resin.  So when I made that bird one, trim the tissue paper with the image to fit the mold, spread a layer of resin on the base of the mold, and gently immerse the image in the resin, then layer more resin over it.  Make sure when you lay the image down, not to trap any bubbles under it.  Don't trim close to the edges of the image, because you are more likely to see the paper edges in the finished product in clear resin.  It is not as noticeable when there is a backing.

Onyxnox, very cool technique!  I wish I had a laser printer, there is so many fun things I want to try that my ink jet just won't let me.  All the pendants you made are beautiful.

I thought I had posted the pendants I received from gala_apples, sweetyetevil, and skywookie but it doesn't look like I did.  I will get right on that. 

Glad that my pendants are finally arriving!  What a relief.  I'm glad you like them sweetyetevil!  I did a lampwork piece for everyone.  Although now I can't remember who got what!

You could also hand draw the image on tissue paper too, or use a stamp with a good archival ink, or staz on, and you would get the same effect, or similar (there may be a bit of bleeding, and you may need to play with different inks, or setting the inks somehow).

I received my pendants from dreadlady last week.

I received a very pretty bird pendant and a dragonfly pendant. She did the dragonfly in my college colors. Go Iowa State!



I also received a glass pendant.



Thanks so much dreadlady.

geez.  I can't believe it took me so long to post these.  I'm horrible and I apologize, but finally everything has gone back to normal.  So here are all the goodies I received...I got sweetyetevil's on my birthday so that was a fun birthday present!

Here are the ones sweetyetevil sent me:

I love this one!  It was on my pintrest and it contains a "dandelion puff" inside the vial. 

This awesome glass heart with silver and crystal details.  I really like this one Smiley  It has a gear and key, which I love.

These are from SkyWookiee:
Polymer clay pieces.  One with neat colorful swirls and one terra cotta colored with a gold wash.  Both a lovely!



And From gala_apples:
Three beautiful pendants.

I wear a lot of boho type sun dresses in the summer.  Especially since it has been almost 100 degrees every day this summer with 100 percent humidity....I have worn this piece a lot this summer.  It's stained wooden beads on a silver chain.  Love

Also I received this stamped leather feather in a beautiful shade of purple/burgandy/magenta, and a natural wood piece on a silver chain.  Love 'em all!

I love all the pendants you ladies made for me, and it was really great to have something so nice to look forward to last month.  Sorry that some of yours are still in transit!  I hope you like them!  Thanks for everything!!!!!

I received from Dreadlady today - so I have received from everyone.  I will try to post pics tomorrow - thank you Dreadlady.  Unfortunately, it looked like a little part of the tree may have broken off in the shipping, but I think I may be able to fake-fix it with a bit of metallic paint.  It still looks gorgeous - I just hope my pics will do them justice!
