Antique Pink

About this design:

This pendant has been in my stash for over two years. It's ceramic, and had some chips, where the glaze had worn off. I decided to see what would happen if I sanded the remainder of the glaze off the raised spirals, and then retouched it with a permanent gold metallic pen. Resealed with clear coat & here is the end result...I think it pairs nicely with the fab czech ovals I ordered last week.


czech glass ovals, small copper tubes, antique copper balls & LB's copper chain.

    Oh I love this! Your pendant looks like a perfect match with the Czech beads! And I love the mix of Czech beads you used, both color and type. I’m impressed that you came up with a way to “restore” your pendant, very smart!
