A piece of Victoriana


 I was looking through an old book I had bought from a charity shop, all about the Victorian era and came across a photo of a painting which I really liked - and thought that part of it would look good in a pendant - and here it is! 



As before, I have used a book plate that has been distressed to age it.  Added a little glass 'dangley' and a soft suede thong to hang it on.  I am working on one more - it's proving to be quite difficult - but I like a challenge.  UTEE is such an unpredictable material to use.  Just when you think you have mastered it - it plays up again and you mess up more than a few images.

Beautiful pendant and gorgous colour. You've been very busy. I haven't done any crafting while I've been off. Happy New Year. Lots of LOve Chris x

This is gorgeous. I just love the shade you've achieved here. Do you melt the UTEE into the frame over the picture then? It's VERY impressive.

I really love both of those pieces. Beautiful! I love everything and anything victorian. I sometimes think a mistake was made and I ended up in the era.
Happy New Year!
