The blue pendant

I managed to complete a pendant today - lots of trial and error trying to improvise - like the metal 'roof' which was on the pendant I made on the course.  But for some reason the metal improvised roof would not stick with superglue.

Anyway here it is


I made this with an inch square memory frame with glass.  In 'real life' the frame shiney, almost black with touches of blue.  The insert is a piece of card which I coloured with blue ink, then 'splashed' with dark ink blue, and added tiny little pansies.  For some some reason I just can't get a decent photo - it might be something to do with the glass reflecting the light.  I don't want to make it darker, as when I did that to the TH style tags I made - in the other post - the tags looked fine on my laptop where I edited them, but when I looked at the post on my old computer the pictures looked really dark - so I am in a quandry! The pendant can be worn either way - but the pansy side is what I consider to be the back. 
And this is the front

The tiny photo behind the glass in this frame is a lot clearer and darker as a photo would be. 
The ribbon in her hair is blue, the dress a deep rose pink.  The silver charm I added has been coloured with slate alcohol ink,all the 'grooves' are black, and the raised pattern is tinted blue  with alcohol inks.  I love this - and it will be hard to part with it - but I will - after I have had a week or two to look at it.

Gorgeous pendant Lottie. No wonder you'll be loath to give it away!

That's gorgeous, I love the vibrancy of the blue.

I sometimes find it's my screen settings that make things look dark, rather than the photo itself being dark by the way just in case that's of help.

Beautiful piece.

Oh, wow, Lottie, that's absolutely beautiful. I'm not sure I'd be able to part with it if I'd made it, but if you do, someone is going to be very lucky.
