NOT that I need another hobby... but I have been having fun lately making glass tile pendants. My friend Jeanne shared her source with me for necklace making supplies after I won one of her beautiful creations, so I placed an order at Sun and Moon Craft Kits! They were super accommodating of my international order, and very friendly to work with.

I found some square and rectangle glass tiles on clearance at an Etsy store going out of business, so this is my first project using those tiles, with the organza necklace and bail from Sun and Moon. This is a stamped image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - you know I love my poppies... I stamped the image in a light ink and colored it in with Touch Markers.
At some point I'll make more of these square and rectangle necklaces to sell - one of a kind, handcolored pieces - but for now this is it, and this one's mine. :)

The other necklaces I have been making are made using batik paper - batik is a traditional art form in Asia Pacific, so I thought it would be fun to make necklaces to bring with us when we come to the States. For these I'm using flat-backed rounded marbles... I'm sure there's a proper name for them, but I can't remember any more! I'm making some for gifts, and some to sell. If you happen to be interested in buying one, let me know soon so I can tuck one away for you! These will sell for $6.00 apiece, and each one is unique.
