P is for Paris and pendant

Sometimes when we have a sweet sponsor at City Crafter
we as the DT are so lucky as to receive a package
with some craft supplies.

For this week's challenge at CCCB we got little woodframes
and some fancy glittering drops by Freckled Fawn.

I scratched my head
and didn't know what to create with them.
Because they're so different in style from what I usually make...

But then I received the beautiful gift of Marie and inspiration started to overflow. (You can find the photo I used of Miss Lily Elsie also in that same post, as a freebie.)

I thought 'why not try to make my own pendant' not soldered like Marie's but with the wood frame instead. So here's the result. My first (non-soldered) pendant.

I painted the frame so it would look a bit like old silver.
Which you don't really see in the photos
but never mind.

City Crafter challenge this week:

Wood + frame

Use wood pieces or frame (or both) on your project.


Thank you for your sweet visits and support dear blog friends. I can't say this enough because without you my dear blog would have been an empty and desolate place. And a very warm welcome to new visitors and friends. I hope you feel at home here.

Wishing you a blessed week.
