Miss Sarah and a little soup

I had made this resin pendant a while ago and had offered it for sale strung on a sterling ball chain, but it did not sell and it felt "plain" to me. The image is on parchment and I set it in a sterling bezel. Well today, I cliped the ring on the top and filed it smooth and I then set it in a vintage brass setting and mounted it to an etched copper, what a difference!

It gave the piece some age and looks like it has a story to tell. I added more antique elements and some gorgeous Czech glass beads. A sweet gold washed lingerie pin is the closure.
You can find Miss Sarah in my Etsy shop.

I have been souped! Yay, my little package from Karen arrived the other day and I was so excited to rip into it! Check out the little purse that was holding all my goodies, how cute is that?!
Karen made me some beautiful lampwork beads and some silver charms, she added some Swarovski beads and some hill tribe spacers. I can't wait to get started!

I hope everyone had a good weekend and all you New Englanders survived Irene in good shape.


  1. You did a great remake, I really like it aged.

  2. Wow, what a transformation on your bezel piece. It's a stunner. Your bead soup looks really fun to work with. Wonder what you'll come up with.

  3. Miss Sara got a great face lift. She will likely fly out of the shop now!! She's gorgeous now!
    Enjoy your soup.

  4. Judy, I LOVE your makeover on the vintage style pendant. Resetting it and adding the copper really made the "antique" look pop. Stunning!

    Can't wait to see what you concoct with your soup! :o)
