We had a great time on Saturday making pendants at Kecia DeVeney's home/studio in Wall Township, NJ. It was an hour and a half away for me, but it was such a gorgeous day I didn't mind the drive at all. We made pendants using old tintype photos, brass findings, old rhinestones and chandelier crystals and put it all together with solder, glue and resin. What fun!
My pendant is the heart-shaped guy, second row, far right.
It was also fun to see Kecia's home and her artwork, which I'd only seen photos of before. I'll tell you one thing, that girl knows how to work a flea market...

A secret weapon
“Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air and send millions of little parachutes floating down to earth -- boxes of Crayolas. Not little boxes of eight. Boxes of 64, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime. And people would smile and get a funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.” --Robert Fulghum
