Heart Collage Pendant



The other day, I was reading Andrew Thornton's blog, and he mentioned that someone made a pendant out of a collage he had made. I remembered I had been the lucky recipient of a collage by Andrew when I purchased an Anne Choi heart from his destash sale. I thought, hmmmm, I made that heart collage for the Art Bead Scene challenge with punched out washi paper, I'm sure Andrew's art would look great in one of the heart pendants. Last night I punched out the heart, and glued and then mod-podged it in place. I wanted to wait overnight, so the glue would dry all the way and produce no bubbles. This morning I glazed it with Amazing Glaze and, tada! A beautiful pendant! I hope Andrew likes it!

I am sure that he will be tickled... and that reminds me that I have some of his collages too! They are taped to my wall as color inspirations. I love that it looks like a mended heart. So pretty Sue! Bravo! Enjoy the day. Erin

what's not to like! I love it as I'm sure he will! That reminds me I have some old washi paper I was going to cover eggs with :)

Hey Sue!

Oh, I'm so flattered that you've used a bit of art in your's. You've created a lovely pendant. It's always interesting to see where your work ends up and how it effects people. Sometimes I imagine my collages in heaps of trash, discarded after someone opens their package... so it's nice to see that they are being treasured and preserved and that they will live on.

The heart reminds me of one I did in a necklace called, "Not Without". http://andrew-thornton.blogspot.com/2010/01/not-without.html

Thanks so much for thinking of me and incorporating the collage!

OH! The heart you got was from Candice Wakumoto. I very rarely, if ever, will part with my Anne Choi beads. They are all hidden away in a box of my most favorite things.

Andrew, you're right - it was a Candice heart! Glad you like the pendant!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!


These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
