Pendants for my BFF's

Oh my gosh. I seem to be running so far behind these days. With Christmas parties and all the prep I've had very little time to blog. I did want to share two little gifts I made for my two BFF's. Since they have now received them I can show them to you.
This one was for my  GF who Loves anything France.
Of course it has an Eiffel tower and lots of vintage jewelry pieces.
 I started with a heart shape that I fashioned from a piece of brass
then added all the elements.

This one has Angels, crosses, pieces from a Rosary and lots of vintage jewels.
Again started with a brass heart.

Here's how I packaged them. In little pull top tins.
Yes they Loved them!!!
Hope your all enjoying the season of giving.
I have lots to share with you soon.
 So much happy mail. Just need time to photograph it all!!

How could they not adore these precious gifts! Both are stunning to say the least! Did you say it is Christmas?? I am getting ready to wrap my hubby's gifts, all others have been mailed or given! The cards went out yesterday and today! Did I wait until the last minute or what! Still need to do "meal" shopping, but it will just be the two of us, so no biggy there! Have a wonderful week! Hugs!
