Got my package from Thrifty4U today  inside I found this beautiful  pendant, hard to capture the iridecence,

AND (hopping up and down and squeeling like a little girl) she sent this skeleton flamingo !!! I love this sooooo much.  .  

Sorry pictures are crazy big and I cant seem to make them smaller.

No worries!  Cheesy

Yesterday I received from Dr. Craft and today from pjr107.
I am a lucky girl!

First I got 2 great necklaces from Dr. Craft.
A cool crystal and wire pendant:



And a more upcycled piece- cool re-use of an earring!


From pjr107- A neat Raku piece that is a full blown necklace!  I think as much work went into the necklace as the pendant itself- I love the color!:


A close-up of the pendant:


And the cutest koi I've ever seen - much less lucky enough to own! :


A pic so you can see his translucent tail and fins:  Smiley  Even his eyes are iridescent, sooo cool.


Thank you ladies! Smiley

Wow! love the new additions to the gallery!
Nice fused glass and I love the flamingo!
The upcycled piece with the repurposed earring is very cool and that koi is amazing!
Such a talented group of artists in this swap!

Trying this again... my phone won't register the one set of pictures so I can't pull them up.  UGH, technology!
I received from Dr. Craft and ThriftyLiving4U and here we are with their amazing pendants....

Dr. Craft sent 3 pendants (wow!) and my pics aren't as great as others and don't do them justice!

Felt like I was getting the hope diamond, it sparkled so much!

Really pretty crystal and wire, is this a recon from an old chandelier?

The beautiful blue of the stones doesn't show up in the picture.



These are from ThriftyLiving4U.... two pendants and cookies!

fused glass (haven't tried this craft but wow! Amazing results!)

this is paper backed onto a plastic pendant. How did you get the paper so smooth and not really visible from the back?


Thanks for these beautiful pendants and thanks for our wonderful swap hostess, gala_apples!

I'm glad that everyone likes their pendants (and they've gone to the right homes so far).  And just so everyone knows, I worked really hard on the necklace part.... it was really difficult walking down that JoAnne jewelry aisle...  nope, didn't make them.

There are just some amazing pendants on here, I don't know which one is my fav!  The skeleton flamingo made me laugh; that black one from Dr Craft, wow; that button necklace ( I couldn't even dream of stitching all those buttons on!); the glass tree; the iocane powder vial..... ok, ok, ok.... just send them all to my house Smiley

PJ,
I only have a tiny little kiln, but I've been having fun with it!  I thought that there'd be more differentiation between the red and orange but I was hoping that you love the purple background!
And as for the 2nd pendant, I had a craft-astrophe with the entire first batch.  So this was plan B (using fragments instead of wood titles) but using the same images.  The key to not being visible from the back- gesso first, then paint.  I'm still bummed about the ruined batch, but I'm sure there's a saying about that.  Crying over spilled sealant.... Cats dumping craft tables are lucky...and if not...there should be!
