On the First Day of Xmas...

...Kathy Strittmater gave everyone these wonderful pendants created from an empty shell casing. The casing is wrapped with a scrap of ephemera and silver curly cues. It reminds me of an ancient scroll.

You would never guess that this pendant is made from a shell casing unless you were to have a close look at it. It's impressive how Kathy can look at something like this and see the potential for something beautiful to come of it. Amazing!

Stop by again tomorrow to see more gifts!
