I am not ajewel woman.
My fingers are completely bare, no rings nor wedding band. No necklace, pearl string or gold chain aroud my neck. No brooches on my breast nor bracelets on my arms.
The only adornments I wear is a tiny silver loop on my right ear and a very handy Timex Ironman watch on my left wrist.
I have a gigantic jewelry chest though, a big wooden box made by my bro Richard. It is filled to the rim with 60's custom colorful jewels and valuable antique gold trinkets of all kinds inherited from my grand-parents that I love to hold in my hands and play with.
And I have a very special Flinstones metal lunchbox where I hide my most precious piece of all, the silver-charm bracelet I was offered for my 6th birthday. ILOVEcharms! The more intricate, the better ! The more funky and strange, the more I need to own them ! Not to wear it, mind you ... Just because these little miniatures are so much fun to collect and look at!
A couple of days ago, I decided to make wooden pendants with the reclaimed wood left out from making my little wooden block prints. Talk about recycling and upcycling !
Each pendant measures 7/8"x 1 3/4", 1 1/8" x 1 1/8" or 1" x 1 1/4", is coated with 4 layers of gloss, comes with a 21" ball-chain and a pink organza string pouch to store it in.
Aren't they charming and absolutely adorable?
I think they look like candies, yummy enough to eat!
I made 18 different ones and each of them is available in my
Etsy shop under the section Jewelry.
I will be making more styles soon and if there is a painting of mine you would like to have on a pendant, just let me know and I will make it just for you.And no calories !
