new fun things hooray

The art fair season is officially under way, and I'm having fun with some new additions to my booth... mostly these! --->

I've only made a few, but as soon as my next order of glass tiles arrives, I'll be playing in the studio and making more of these pendants, using various images from my photographs.

I LOVE THEM.

They're fun to make~ very gratifying. And I really enjoy the process of playing around with different images. Some photos I'd planned on using turned out to look pretty dumb, and others surprised me in a very happy kind of way.

(A few are up in my Etsy shop! And I can make custom ones with kid pictures, pet pictures, etc. Snazzy!)

Those glass tile pendants are pretty nifty. But I have two questions.

What do you do with them? If I give someone one of these as a gift, I'm sure they'll ask.

And would you be willing to use someone else's photograph? My sister has a baby who'd look adorable in a 7/8" pendant.

Dear Anonymous,

The silver bail that's attached to the back of the pendant can be used with any chain, ribbon, or cord of the wearer's choosing. :)

And I'd be more than happy to create a custom piece! A digital image can be sent via e-mail, and I'll mail the finished pendant anywhere it might need to travel.

Thanks for asking!

I should add~ if one were to request a custom piece, a good way to do this is through my Etsy shop. (thehappydabbler.etsy.com) Click on the contact button and send a message with a photo attached. :)
