Motivation for a pendant or two

Not a lot of time for art today - quite a bit of cleaning up after the recent rain and wind; and catching up with an overseas artist friend.

But Fiona's birthday motivated me to make a simple natural looking pendant from timber and wood (Hairy Oak off cuts). I made two so that she had a choice. She chose the long slim one - so the other will go to a friend.

Making those pendants resulted in my finishing a couple more bone pendants.

And a couple of silver-plated EPNS and resin pendants - by-products of the ring commission I was doing.

Now I'm off to help do a few bits to prepare for dinner with the visitors tonight.


  1. Lucky lady ... happy birthday Fiona! May you wear it in happiness and good health.

  2. Wonderful pendants, Barry! The last one is very interesting.
