Now I have soldered the edges and added a jump ring. I'm going to take it for a test wear tonight at the hockey game.

Here's a shot of the back of the pendant. If it flips over while being worn, it still looks purdy.

In another light...

Cool stuff!

This is one of my greatest finds, well it's one of my most favorite at least. It was $5 from one of the most amazing houses I have ever been in. I wish I had my iPhone at that time because I'm sure I could have taken some amazing photos!

It still has the original drawer liner. It doesn't even require much cleanup since it was in a sewing room.

This mirror is from the late '40s. I love the convex mirror - that's hard to find these days!

Still from the same house...this mini Superior Electric fan - it's smaller than a desktop sized fan. I love the chartreuse Franciscan sugar bowl and creamer.

All in all, it was a good day of shopping. As of right now, I'm keeping the chest of drawers. I'm thinking all my sewing and embroidery notions might be better organized in this.
