My Stardust Collection fused glass pendants were chosen as a winner in Facet Jewelry's October 2016 Challenge: Echo.
My description of how the collection fit the theme of the challenge... "Barks and meows of furry friends past echo in the minds of animal lovers. This collection incorporates the ashes of precious pets into the grout between the colored tiles in these fused glass memorial pendants so we can wear them close to our hearts forever."
Thank you, Facet Jewelry!
One of my necklace and earring sets was recently used in an advertisement on Facebook by one of my favorite businesses, Urban Maille, a wonderful online company that makes the very best precious metal rings for making chain maille jewelry. They also offer excellent tutorials and kits. If you want to try your hand at weaving chain, Urban Maille is the place to start!
The pendant and earrings in the photo are currently for sale. Please visit the item listing for more photos and information about this elegant set.
Thanks, friends at Urban Maille!
