More Artful Pendants........

I hope everyone had a really wonderful holiday and is still enjoying their weekend. We've still got company but I'm going to try to get to putting the finishing touches on my faux window so I can be done with it and ready to start the next one.

In the meantime though I've been running around making some more pendants for my shop. The 5 above are all from paintings I've created in the past, that I thought might lend themselves to the rectangular shape of the glass pieces.

I'm creating a special section in my shop for Exotic Orchids because that is exactly what they are, exotic beauties that really need their own place to bloom.

These photos were all taken at the 2008 NY Botanical Garden Orchid Show this past March. If you want to see photos of that gorgeous show and glimpses of shows from the previous years, just visit my "out and about" section in the column to the right. The show is a must see and is filled with rooms and rooms of gorgeous orchids cascading and growing up from every imaginable surface. Truly a treat for the eyes.

Hi Ruth,

Your new pendant collection is beautiful. I love my pink heart pendant and wore it on a black ribbon and received so many compliments. Pendants are really popular and make such great little gifts.

Your photographs of orchids are lovely and make charming pendants.

I sent you a message yesterday and got an error - hope this is not a duplicate.

Have a great creative week.
Erin
P.S. I love the little chickadee pendant and am wearing it today to a luncheon.
