Here they are, my beautiful pendents from Scarlet Nights!  Sorry the pic isn't the greatest, I'm stuck with my phone's camera for the time being.  Thank you so much Scarlet, they are perfect!

OOoh, I'm partial to that green one, too!  Great beginning to the gallery - can't wait to see what comes next!  :D

Post by: Onyxnox on July 10, 2015 06:50:45 AM
I did not know there was a gallery already!

I received from scarlet_nights too - I received a package earlier in the week, but wanted to motivate myself to finish and send my current swap packages so did not allow myself to open until I sent.

This is what she sent me - lovely colourful glass pendents:



A lovely peacock eye pendent



and a dichroic look pendent that is in lovely colours!

Post by: Thimbles71 on July 10, 2015 08:22:05 AM
Really lovely pendants!!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: bunny1kenobi on July 10, 2015 10:18:00 AM
Wow, those are really pretty!  I would have a hard time choosing between them if I had to pick a fave!

I received awesome pendants from gozer, as well!  A pretty wire wrapped pendant and a cute birdhouse!  Love the colored wire she used.



I also really like the fun details on the birdhouse - the little flower and this adorable owl:



Gozer dislikes birds intensely, so the fact that this text was totally randomly part of the pendant is so hysterical:



"beat a person"... in bold, no less!  So funny!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: gozer on July 10, 2015 10:51:33 AM
 I'm glad you like them! I almost kept the birdhouse because of that but I figured you would find it funny too. Very random. I didn't even notice it until I was sealing it. LOL! :P


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: Feywalker on July 10, 2015 01:29:13 PM
That is too funny  ;D  the colors on that washer pendant are beautiful.

Scarlet Nights, you do such beautiful work!  Love your colors.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: gozer on July 10, 2015 02:53:38 PM
 I received from Bunny1kenobi today and she did not disappoint! I love both of them so much.
 First up I got this galaxy looking pendant I was eyeing over in the Games. I love the colors!

 It's raining here and dreary so I will swap out these photos for brighter ones if I can get them this weekend. It doesn't do it justice with how pretty it is.
 Then she surprised me with this amazing piece! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the chain part. It's SO pretty! She knows I love those little roses. She put it together so beautifully with the key, cameo, sprocket and roses. Amazing job Bunny1kenobi. I LOVE it!!!!

 


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5

Yay!! So glad you like them!   ;D ;D ;D

Post by: Thimbles71 on July 10, 2015 06:35:00 PM
I received today from the lovely Gozer!  The birdhouse pendant is so very cool!  And I really love the steampunk inspired pendant, too!  I wore the birdhouse necklace today!  But, they'll both go into the rotation.  They're both just so fantastic.  :)



Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: scarlet_nights on July 10, 2015 06:57:39 PM
Thank you. Belive it or not the non picture ones are done with different kinds of nail polish.

That is too funny  ;D  the colors on that washer pendant are beautiful.

Scarlet Nights, you do such beautiful work!  Love your colors.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: La Chapa on July 11, 2015 09:19:05 AM
Wow! I am loving all the pendants so far! I especially love all the sparkly ones! The steampunk one is to die for!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: Feywalker on July 13, 2015 09:53:56 AM
Thank you. Belive it or not the non picture ones are done with different kinds of nail polish.

That's neat, I will have to try it sometime!

Bunny1kenobi, love your galaxy and steampunk pendants!  Such details.

Those birdhouses are too cute and I like the combo of star and gears, Gozer.

Post by: gozer on July 13, 2015 11:59:35 AM
 I got my second set of pendants on Saturday from Thimbles71 and I could tell she had a great time making them because I got not two but SIX pendants!
 First up are the felt set. She made me this cute little lady and a neat embroidered pink one. My favorite color is pink so this works out great.

 Next up are the seed bead set. I think these are just amazing. Love the textures and colors of them. They are both very pretty.

 and a long fabric one with a serene scene with flowers. I love the mood of this one.

 and last but not least, my personal favorite. This dramatic bird one. It's very striking.

 Love them all and thank you so much Thimbles71!!!! These are awesome.  ;D


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: bunny1kenobi on July 13, 2015 01:10:01 PM
I also received pendants from Thimbles71!  Unlike gozer, I did just one group shot. 



My favorite is also the black and white one with the red background!

Thank you Thimbles, they are all lovely!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: gala_apples on July 13, 2015 09:59:56 PM
I really like the big sewn flower ones. Nice work Thimbles!

I gave my first piece of feedback today. But just to let you know, I'm on vacation from the 15th to the 27th, so updating statuses might be a little slow. I'll do my best!

Post by: kbrison on July 15, 2015 03:05:00 AM
Received this gorgeous Tree of Life pendant today from Redpopsicles. Blue and silver is absolutely my favorite color combination so I know I'll be wearing this often. Thanks so much!

I mailed all of mine out this afternoon.

I received from redpopsicles. She sent a Nightmare Before Christmas themed one. Deadly Nightshade, Frog's Breath and Worm's wort. I was wearing my Jack Skeleington shirt so I wore it all day.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: Thimbles71 on July 17, 2015 05:23:25 PM
I received this gorgeous, lovely pendants from Bunny1Kenobi last week.

They're both so lovely, but I think the glittery one is my favorite!



Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: La Chapa on July 17, 2015 10:13:18 PM

Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: gozer on July 21, 2015 06:48:38 AM
 That Tree of Life is gorgeous Redpopsicle and I love the chunky glitter Bunny1kenobi. All great pendants so far!
 I received from smittenheart yesterday. She sent me three very pretty pendants.  :D

 Thanks so much. I think the longer green one is my favorite. It's on the back of a domino. The top pink one is on a Scrabble tile.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: WiccadWitch on July 21, 2015 11:16:21 AM
NOOOOO!!!!! I had my post done, clicked "preview" to make sure the pictures showed up and it sent me to the "log in" page and erased my entire post  >:(

I won't preview it this time so I hope everything is OK.


The Awesome pendants I received:

Amethyst and wire pendant from "Redpopsicles"




Dragon pendant from "Kbrison" (I'm sorry the picture isn't better. I took it outside and it got washed out a little, but, inside the flash washed it out more and without the flash you couldn't see anything  :()






Washer and stones w/leaf pendant from "Whattepuck"




Thank you all so much, I've received a lot of compliments on all of them (we might have some new Craftster members soon  ;))!!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: Thimbles71 on July 21, 2015 05:46:00 PM
I love those!  They are all lovely.  The wire and Amethyst is fantastic.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: La Chapa on July 21, 2015 05:57:30 PM
Yay, jennythor! So glad you received!  ;D

I am loving all the fun creativity in this gallery!  Just wait until you guys see what bronzfrog sent me!! I'm working on taking pictures...


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: kbrison on July 21, 2015 08:04:24 PM
Not one but two pendants from wiccadwitch. The first is a purple epoxy clay with layered daisies. Not sure how she managed to make the petal tips so sharp and detailed, but I think they're wonderful! I also show a shank button being held in my fingers. That acts as a slide to adjust the length of the necklace. So clever!

The second pendant from wiccadwitch is formed from what appear to be glass shards on a silver medallion base. Beautiful color and very reflective. Are they embedded in epoxy clay as well?

My pendant from whatthepuck is a washer that she treated with alcohol inks. Love her color choices! I've been wanting to try this but now I won't have to. Thanks, whatthepuck!

All my partners have been great and I know I'll enjoy wearing each of the pendants!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: La Chapa on July 21, 2015 09:17:31 PM
Wow! Love those! Especially the purple flower one!

These are the pendants bronzfrog made for me.  She also included an extra! A gorgeous magnet!  She must have done some great stalking because I ablsolutely love them!  Bronzfrog, is the skull one polymer?  Did you sculpt that!?  I'm super impressed if you did. The magnet is a section of one of my favorite works of art that I have pinned.   ;D



Thanks bronzfrog!  I hope you like your pendants half as much as I like mine!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: Feywalker on July 22, 2015 05:46:22 AM
Wow  :o there is some beautiful work.  I'm in love with the amythyst and dragon ones.  The flowers on the purple one are so detailed and gorgeous.  The blue glass is so neat.  I also love to see what people can do with a basic washer.  You guys make them look so good.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: Onyxnox on July 24, 2015 07:39:12 AM
I received from Feywalker...



This is a lovely polymer clay piece which nicely represents my love of the woods and nature.



I love the leaf shape of this piece, and the use of beads.

Thank you, Feywalker :)

Post by: La Chapa on July 24, 2015 11:42:23 PM
I like the one that looks kinda like a bamboo stalk!

I received today from jennythor, and they are wonderful!  I will post pics tomorrow night.  I've had a great round of pendant swapping!  I definitely need to hone my skills quite a bit for the next round, but I've definitely been inspired by how great everyone's pendants are.


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: jennythor on July 25, 2015 08:31:35 AM

Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: WiccadWitch on July 25, 2015 08:42:45 AM
kbrison, no it isn't set in epoxy, the base is painted to enhance the color of the glass.
I found a tutorial for faux druzy, and that is my attempt, it didn't come out as "sparkly" as I had hoped it would (at least not inside, I didn't check outside).


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: gala_apples on July 25, 2015 10:38:10 PM
If everyone could look at the first page, and tell me if your recieved list is correct, that would be a great help. I think it's possible I missed a few PMs. I will be giving feedback asap.

Not two, but 4 lovely pendants made for me by Onxynox.  Sorry it took me so long to post, couldn't find a cord.  The pictures don't do these justice, but here are some close ups of her wonderful work.

I think this one is my favorite.  

textured clay base with embossed metal.  So cool, the metal is stitched onto the clay with wire.

Leather flower.  Love the colors.  I wore this one on friday.

leather and metal.  Such a neat combo. (:))

Thank you so much Onxynox!


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: Onyxnox on July 27, 2015 07:00:05 AM
Yay!  I wasn't sure if you received or not!  I even forgot I sent 4 pendents for that matter!  Glad everything made their way to you safely :)

Oh yes - and that last one is textured leather and metal :)

Post by: Feywalker on July 27, 2015 01:05:01 PM

This is the pendant I made for redpopscicles. It's based upon an image from her pinterest. The little witches have the sweetest Celtic border on the edge of their dresses. I hope she liked it.

Post by: redpopsicles on August 04, 2015 11:40:29 AM
Just getting an opportunity to post pics of my amazing partners' work. I love them all, and am working them all into the wardrobe.

From kbrison, some wonderful witches under a full moon:


From whatthepuck, my favorite combo of black/red/silver on an anchored heart with wings:


And 2 pendants from wiccadwitch! A super cute pair of mushrooms and an iridescent disc:


Thank you so much! I love all of them! Also, I don't know why all the pics are sideways. I tried to get them rotated, but they were uncooperative...


Title: Re: Pendant Swap Round 5
Post by: gala_apples on August 04, 2015 08:42:45 PM
So the last package has been recieved. Hopefully there are still a few pics to come, but other than that, see you next time  :)

Post by: Onyxnox on August 06, 2015 06:38:06 AM
I love the rectangular butterfly pendant. Are the flower and large butterfly made of leather?


Yes, the flower is made from layered leather and suede pieces and the butterfly is embossed leather.

I received from darkangelwingz...

this is a lovely bead-woven piece - I love how kinetic it is.



This is made with dagger beads wire wrapped together



My lighting sucks this morning, no matter how I tried, I could not get a good shot that shows the colours well - the first is a lovely amber colour, and the second pendent, the dagger beads are red with a lovely blue iridescence.

Thank you very much!
