Hand Painted Dresser, Hand Stamped Pendants

I had a pretty productive weekend this weekend, both with work and family/friends time. This pink and white dresser is an antique dresser I picked up this summer. It had been in a landmark inn in town that was demolished so I rescued it and gave it a new life. (It's raining out so I had to take the photos in my messy studio). I love the lines on this piece and had fun with the colors.

These are some other pieces, all in different stages of being finished. It was a gorgeous, relatively warm weekend so I got quite a bit of sanding done outside.

Now, these have been so much fun and so popular. They are blowing out of our home parties and I do have them available on my website. Notice the center one above ... lots of customers have been ordering three discs on one chain and it really stacks up and looks neat.

These all need chains, some on their own, some in groupings.

I loved this idea ... a 13 year old ordered these as a Christmas gift for her best friend ... each of their initials on each necklace. It's along the idea of a best friend necklace that comes in two pieces but how cute is this?

Finally, some fun vintage earrings I picked up that I will be listing later today.
Thanks for visiting ...

Those charms are very cool too. I'll need to show Sarah the best friend one. That may be something she would love to give.

Here are a couple of really easy pendants you can make that would be good Christmas or holiday gifts this year. I used CopprClay, but you could use any other metal clay you wanted, or even polymer clay. Since these end up looking somewhat like fossils, it would be interesting to experiment with some of the “granite ” colored polymer clays, or to mix your own faux stone. Vintage Rings
