Remember my decal penny project? Imagine how crazy-giddy I was to receive an email from Wendy Baker telling me about the jewelry she designed with her own decal penny charms inspired by my tutorial, along with a whole lot of other deliciousness.
So, I took a stroll through Wendy’s Etsy shop, Bendywho…and then her Flickr photos… and then I had to go lie down. Gorgeous overload. Who needs to ever go clothing shopping again, just a little black dress and a whole lot of Bendywho may be all you ever need!
Wendy writes, “I love flea markets. Old, dented, battered, patinated and beglittered elements are just my kind of thing. Combining these possibly neglected elements into fresh designs is my dream come true. Access to vintage, new, unused, jewelry stock and interesting, purposeful objects allows for happy blending experiments. The emergence of fresh combinations from my hands and pliers allows me to fulfill my lifelong interest in gardening without killing any plants. In this way, recycled, repurposed, organic compositions and artistic intentions coincide.”
Wendy is also going to send one to a lucky JSIM readers! So, to enter to win one of the Bendywho penny charm necklaces pictured in the first photo, leave a nice comment for Wendy on this post! Entry closes Sunday, December 5 at midnight. I will contact the winner on Monday. UPDATE: Randomly chosen winning number is: #160: Karin! Congratulations!! And thank you everyone for all the really great comments!
If you still can’t get enough of Wendy’s fabulous creations, you can visit her blog, Wednesday 3 o’clock.
Thank you Wendy, for my lovely necklace, the giveaway and for rocking out the decal penny pendant project!
