A Change of Pace

So, I pretty much have craft ADD, and I've been looking for other ways to reuse vintage book illustrations besides the buttons and magnets I already have in the shop. I'd like to try soldered pendants, but I have to admit I'm a bit scared of burning my fingers.

I know that a lot of people make and sell glass and Scrabble tile pendants, so I'm a bit hesitant to post these here and was even hesitant to try them out. They were fun to make, though. I'm not sure if I am 100% happy with the end result (sealing the back did not come out as smoothly as I hoped and I dunno if I can deal with the smell of the bail adhesive), but it was fun to experiment with something new.

My two favorites are below, an American Lotus and a four-leaf clover.

And of course, I had to have some llamas in there:

I like how this last guy looks like he's laughing at something.

So anyway, new experiment. We'll see.
