Pendant Challenge

May's challenge over on our forum was to make a pendant and at last I got around to soldering. I really enjoyed it and it was much easier than I thought it would be. I sent this one to Joanne.

I also made a background to keep it on when she wasn't wearing it. The butterfly stamp in the background is one of the first designs by my best mate Penny. You can buy them from The Stamp Bug. I think they're really good and I hope she carries on designing.

Then I had to make another one for me! LOL

well it's mine and I love it. I think the background was a marvellous idea, and Penny's stamps look great.

I think your soldering is marvellous, but more importantly the artwork is gorgeous, and the whole thing is so me, with the butterfly and the touches of purple.

you didn't show the yu-gi-oh one though! lol Jamie adores it, and his friends think it's cool!

thanks again for both! love them.
