This was a microscope slide pendant that I made recently for the Pendant Swap. 

It is a double-sided pendant made with Japanese washi paper, vintage sheet music, soldered between two sheets of microscope slides, with hand-coiled metal hangers soldered on.





I just liked how the lyrics worked out for a two-sided pendant

Here is a little blurb about it on my blog

That is such a clever use of microscope slides and a lovely pendant.  Pity it is a bit too sharp for a baby as the sentiment is very apt.

Thank you - I fell in love doing this when I made some Santa Christmas ornaments a couple of years ago.  I love the sentiment too, and it would work in resin as well, but I am also not sure if I would want a teething baby to suck on or chew a resin piece!
