Willing to personal swap for art of my doggies!

This was another piece I made for Helena Puck as part of the Complete Nonsense swap - she listed anything related to flamingo crochet as a favourite and I love the John Tenniel art work for Alice in Wonderland, so I wanted to make a pendant piece from his flamingo croquet art...



Using a new resist method I was experimenting with, I came up with this - a simple square pendant etched with the image.  I punched holes in the corners to hang jump rings on, so I could hang it on a leather cord, and used a chasing hammer to add some texture to the edges.
