I promise this isn’t too long a post, a few photographs but short on words as I know, even though we have said goodbye to Christmas 2015, it is still a busy time of the year.
One of the gifts I made this Christmas is this pendant, centred around a Prima Relics and Artifacts’ heart – have I mentioned how much I have fallen in love with this range of products!!! I knew the style I had in mind so I had a root amongst some of my favourite stamps from The Stampsmith, which I am sad to say, haven’t been inked up for a wee while. After the lengthy decision of which image would best suit the shape of the heart I opted for this, one of my all time favourite Stampsmith stamps (with Ophelia possibly being my absolute favourite Stampsmith stamp.)
Frescos helped me achieve the look I was aiming for on the heart, almost a stone like appearance,with simple embellishments of beautiful vintage lace and rhinestones and a pearl all set on a long chain with a decorative closure.
There is a little secret to this pendant. Flip it over and there is a message on the rear. The wearer doesn’t need to display this side of the heart but kept close to her heart she will remember that many, many people know she has a loving heart and a dear friend to so many.
(The words above are from PaperArtsy Eclectica ESN (Sara Naumann) along with stamped music score which I quickly distressed before heat setting and sealing. Also, if you are interested in the Relic and Artifacts heart, you can source some of the product range at PaperArtsy.
I hope to squeeze in one more blog post for 2015 which I will share on Hogmanay. Until then, many thanks for your visit to this blog post.
