little bird pendant (lots to do shapes)



Have had a lovely day as I awoke at 7am and managed to get to the gym, do the shopping and get back just as my husband and sons were having breakfast. I have got lots of jewellery supplies so thought I would have a go at making a simple little glass tile pendant. I love making these and a few more are drying at the moment..now to search for some more glass tiles..anyone know a supplier in the UK? Just watching a martha stewart programme titled christmas in july....don't know about you but I like making Christmas stuff when its cold outside not warm!! The challenge over at lots to do this week is nice and general being shapes..go check out the other entries.

apologies for the pet logo thing which keeps popping up trying to get rid of it!!

Love your birdie pendant Lorraine! Sorry, can't help re suppliers of glass tiles, think this is the sort of project I would get addicted to also! x

I like it! I don't know where to get glass tiles, but I do know that I enjoy making pendants on wooden tiles and using some clear resin over the top. The pendant isn't as heavy, but I can use several together!

Wonderful pendant, Lorraine! I always love bird themes. Did you use super glue to attach the bail to the tile? Always curious on the adhesive people use.

Your thumbnail on LTD intrigued me so I had to take a peek as I thought it might be a "game piece" (I used to do a lot of domino stamping). Not a clue about the glass squares unfortunately but this is lovely and I am going to have another look through your blog to find if there are more. Gorgeous!
