There is no front or back, both are equally front and back. Anyway, let's see, a rundown of construction: The picture is my art, printed as a photo. I used a poker chip for the base, then covered it with pieces of aluminum foil tape. Once that was secured, I glued the image in place using Aileen's super tacky glue, then covered it with Glossy Accents. On the reverse, I painted the foil tape with a few layers of bronze colored glittery nail polishes and then added the gears and flatback rhinestones. To achieve the dimensional look, I used a few washers that had been glued together with E-6000 - this is the glue I used on all the gears, actually. Once it was dry and cured, I covered the whole thing in more Glossy Accents. The number that's tucked a bit out of sight is a one, by the way, because that number set didn't have a thirteen.

For now, the pendant is suspended on a simple length of waxed cotton cord, though eventually, I'd like to find a chain for it. There will also likely be more pendants, since I have plenty of pictures to play with.

Christmas has come and wandered off, and I've managed to finish my gifts... pix will come soon, but not until everyone gets theirs, since I don't want to spoil anyone :)

New Years sort of wandered in and said, "Hi, it's been most of a decade and you haven't done crap with your writing." So I kind of looked into my head and said, "Hmm, that's a lot of cobwebs, maybe I'd better clean up."

Yeah, anyway... I'm trying to keep a resolution to write for one hour a day, every day. So far, so good, but... unless I get to tack "fin" on the end of a file, it means nothing, so we'll see. Wish me luck :D.

This next bit gets wordy and full of pictures )
