Art Journal Inspired

I've been art journaling for a while now, and it has been such a help to me personally and creatively. So I've been tossing around some ideas how to incorporate some of the art journaling techniques I've learned into my pendants. I decided on one of the black tree pendants to be part of my experiment. I used a mix of colors on the background with small script stamping on top.
I like the effect a lot and can see more experiments in the near future. And here is another finished pendant of my usual style.
Only 20 more days till Christmas! Woo hoo! Awww ... but who's countin'. ;)

More Pendants!

I've finished up a few more tree pendants. These pendants were created from a mold I made from a few of my tree designs. Then I added more details to the molded piece and almost reshaped it a bit with some sculpting, to give each pendant a unique feel and look. It is fun to play and see how I can change each one just a little with reshaping, color and of course a little sparkle and shimmer if it calls for it.
Finally my photos are looking better. I've tweaked the settings and experimented until I got to a place where I didn't cringe every time I took a photo. What do you think?

We Are Live!

Shop is now open and here is my first listing, Storybook Tree Pendant:
This was a little tricky to photograph. I had great lighting with my light box, but the pendant has a lot of shimmer from the mica powders and glitter so my photos did not turn out the way I had hoped. I am going to play around with the lighting and such and see if the photos turn out a bit better. This pic is one I took outside and shows a bit more detail than some of the others I took.
