I swore I would never make this again but never say never because I finally got motivated to do the tutorial for this. It took about 40 hours of labor for this baby to be birthed. It ended up being 33 pages long with 96 high resolution pictures. This is similar to one I posted earlier but I've changed the shaft and simplified the construction just a tad-although it's still an advanced project. This one measures 2 1/4" long by 1 1/4" wide. It requires some patience to complete but the result will be a romantic pendant worthy of becoming an heirloom. You can see it in my Artfire shop
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
