I’m working on a new affordably priced pendant line that I hope will be perfect for the Riverside Arts Market. I’ll still have my trademark bling there, but I wanted to develop something with a lower price point, particularly with our struggling economy. Glass tile pendants like these certainly aren’t unique; you can find hundreds of them on Etsy. So what will make mine unique? Well, my photographs and collages, of course! I’ve been using fun scrapbook paper to play around and get a feel for the glass and adhesives involved, so that’s what you see here. This is from the stash of paper I used to wallpaper my girls’ dollhouse! I think I have the hang of it so I’ll start playing around with my photos next, and then we’ll move to the collage styles. I thought sticking to glass rather than scrabble tiles or dominos would be more in line with my primary jewelry pieces. Whatcha think?
