On the 12th Day of Xmas...

Kelly Snelling made each of the ladies in group 1 this pendant made from a photo she took of a statue of Jesus.
She placed the photo under thick faceted glass and then created the bezel from polymer clay.

She made twisted wire jump rings, hammered clasps and frames for ceramic beads and added semi-precious gemstones along with her handmade clay bird beads on a leather cord.

Here is a close up of some of the detailing on the back.

As you can see, each necklace is a little bit different. Some of the stones used were faceted chalcedony, amazonite, pearls, jade, dark blue tiger's eye, mother-of-pearl, and quartz.

Crystal Neubauer created this lovely little bird pendant for each of the ladies in group 2. It hangs from a leather cord. The brass bezel has been antiqued on the reverse and the collage has fragments of old script. What a treasure!

There are 2 more gift to post-lucky #13, which I will share later this morning. Stay tuned!
