gothic vintage celebration..


As you know I was very pleased to have an article published in Somerset Apprentice..so I wanted to make a pendant to celebrate it. As its nearly halloween I wanted to make something very gothic but also a bit vintage... I found this pewter rock guitar wings necklace in primark for £1! and I really liked the womans face peering above the wings. To this I have added a pic to a glass tile and some metallic painted grungeboard wings and a lovely vintage crown with a bead...a bit of fun! I have photographed it on top of my collection of rusty tins. The challenge over at
lots to do is vintage so be sure to check out the other entries...
