Copper and 'a green thumb'

About this design:

This is my newest addition in learning techniques. Wood pendents with nostalgic pictures clear coated on. I named this piece 'Copper and a green thumb' because the metal is copper (which I love!) and the tag pendent is of an antique florist shop sign. It also has a riveted flower (Vintaj) that I patina'd and clear coated. The beading along the chain is czech glass from Lima Beads.


Copper chain and findings Czech Glass beading Wood rectangle tag Nostalgic pictures from Tim Holtz line Stain and distress around the edges to create antique effect before coating and adhesive

    I love this artifacual style of pendant. And I love how you incorporated trios of chain links among the beads!
