ok let's try this again :)

my collage pendants sans any naughty reference to my website

The base of each brooch is a laminate counter sample 1 3/4" x 2 5/8." The sample is collaged with paper, stickers, and other objects on both sides. The edges are bound with copper foil tape (for stained glass) and then rubbed with metallic rub-ons by Craf-T Products. The whole brooch is then given 3 coats of varnish. Each brooch hangs from a kilt pin and is embellished with charms and beads. In the later ones I did, I drilled holes in the top for jump rings so I could attach the pin closer to the tiles. Those don't swing around as much.

You can wear these on a necklace like this. Just put the pin through the ceramic bead.

Those are beautiful. And very creative with the necklace adaptation!

Nicely done.

Oh! Those are wonderful! You ever make keychains? The collage tiles look like they would be perfect for keychains!! Very clever, I love them! Especially the worldly travel look they've got. Awesome work! ^__^

I haven't made them as keychains yet, but I plan on it, since several people have requested it.

Thanks!
