pencils!

I bought the above pendant a few weeks ago from Jen Maestre over on etsy, I fell in love with it and ended up treating myself for my birthday. It arrived a couple of weeks ago and I've worn it most days since, can you believe that it is made out of pencils? Very apt for me I thought, being a graphic designer (weak excuse I know, but I had to buy it!) I was wearing it on Saturday when the weather here was really hot and sunny, and after being outside for most of the day I ended up with the pendant shape outlined on my skin when I took it off! Thankfully it has faded a bit since then. And I did have suncream on! And did you notice the other item in the photo? In my parcel Jen included this wonderful brooch, it was a wonderful surprise and already it has pride of place on my jacket. (Jen has let me know that my extra item was a special birthday present, she doesn't usually have extra items to send out as she is so in demand. This makes me even more lucky, thanks Jen!) So if you love pencils, this is the store for you, be warned if you go and look, you will want to buy everything! : ) (the weather here is still grey and raining, I am looking forward to an evening of sewing, whilst ignoring the ironing pile) : )

Hey, you could have colored the sunburn pendent in and changed the colors when you changed your outfits..You could start something new..

Lovely pendant! I would never have thought that it was made out of pencils, very clever! Lovely colours too ideal for the summer when it decides to get here! My frineds BBQ had lovely wether all day. Typical maybe she should pick the day for the next Minack trip.
