Workbench Wednesday ~ Let It Fly

I made these grungy pendants about two years ago.

The butterflies are paper copies that I reduced to 1" and hand colored, then poured a clear suspension solution to seal them in the tiny metal buckle.

Then I drilled holes in the corners to attach them to a chain.

Now that I know how to solder, I need to find out if the metal buckles will accept soldering and make some new ones with a high quality resin, this time!

What are you working on? Please share with a comment!


  1. I am working on a new fall wardrobe for work ... long vests with pants and lots of tunic-y shirts!

  2. I'm working on my old sketchbook
    dusted it off
    now carry it with me
    a bit rusty
    but it feels good to be drawing again

  3. Love the pendants. Good that you're revisiting them. Took a workshop Sunday with Lisa Kokin, Book/Fiber artist. Results posted on my blog.
