New for the New Year

I thought I'd start 2008 off with something totally new and fun - hand painted pendant necklaces. I have painted about 15 so far and I'm having a blast! It gives me a chance to explore other interests without committing to hours of work. So you will see my usual horses on the pendants as well as other animals and Holidays (from Valentine's Day to Day of the Dead). I have been having way too much fun in AC Moore and Michaels looking for pretty beads to dangle below the pendants. Each pendnat is completely hand painted. I don't use glued on, shrunk down prints of my work like many other artists are doing. It's like wearing a miniature piece of original art around your neck. The other nice thing is if your like me and have a metal allergy, the satin cord will not make your skin itchy. So, please check them out if you have a minute. I am listing them on ebay as I paint them. If they become popular I may offer a few special pieces for purchase through my website.
Have a great day!
Jen
