It's a mixed media pendant party!

Once again time has played tricks on me and somehow I lost a week. I mean, I had it right here, right in front of me, but now it is gone. Once I realized that my week had flown the coop I got my bearings (at the dollar store, real cheap) and had a full day of mixed media pendant making. A lot of glue was sniffed (a Mod Podge shout out to Amy!), a lot of paper was snipped and several pastel pencils were sharpened. In the end I had a nice pile of one-of-a-kind pendants all ready to head to my studio show this week. Yay!

Above and below are my four favorites. I love them. And notice how incredible that turquoise patina is on the copper bails and chains! Dang!

These are all great - I especially like the 'time flies' - yes, where do the weeks go??!!
Wonderful patina, too.

Hope this isn't a dumb question but when the copper has been given a patina does it not come off on the wearer's skin? If not how do you seal it to prevent this.

It's not a dumb question at all! Once I give the copper a patina I take all the chains and components outside and give them several light sprayed layers of matte sealer. That way the color is retained and it doesn't turn the wearer green. :)
