Gem swap.....

Last January I read about a pendant(charm) swap in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, I've thought about participating in a "swap" before but just hasn't come together.....it was January....what else did I have to do?  So, I designed a put together my pendant (charm).

I flattened the bowl of a silver spoon and antiqued it a bit with ink.  I glued on a piece of used dryer sheet dyed blue, a coral/pink ribbon, some tatting and a small flower made from tiny shells with a rhinestone center.  The oval pieces it the back of a vintage watch with a brass heart that is held in place with Crystal Effects with some glitter added.

I carefully wrapped it up and mailed it off to the folks at CPS and I waited.............!

Until, today........HAPPINESS!  In the mail, I received this beautifully crafted pendant from Stacey Merrill at Art Snark.

This gorgeous piece is so professionally and beautifully done with the picture of a Victorian woman framed in a metal pendant to which Stacey added butterfly wings.

Fabulous!  Thank you so much Stacey, I will wear it with pride.
