Small Wonders

This is what I have been occupying myself with this morning. They measure
1 1/2 inches square. The first photo is the fronts of the pendants and the second is the reverse. (Obviously the feather is on the reverse of the crow.)

The four patch is from something I had pieced together ages ago and it just so happened that the scale was perfect for this. The button has it's original thread and it's vintage, as is the measuring tape on the reverse.

The crow is from a postage stamp that came on a packet I received recently from Karenann Young. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I was going to do with it. The feather came from an envelope of feathers Deb Trotter sent me last Xmas and the paper behind it was some vintage text from Sally Jean's rummage box. (She had a box of bits in a class I took a year and a half ago and we were welcome to pick through it for odds and ends. I had this piece left over-I just love the colour of the ink.) I cut a piece of Mica to cover the front and back to act as "glass".

I am going to have to make some more of these!

I love these! And how smart of you to use mica--I have had trouble putting in anything thicker than a single piece of paper.

These are both wonderful, Lelainia, but I'm just in love with the crow! Blackbirds are my thing, I think. What will you do with them?
