Lookie, Lookie what I made!

This past Sunday I took a Resin Pendant workshop at the Fraser Valley Bead Show from Mikel Lefler. I'm pretty tickled with the results, tee hee hee!

Mikel provided lots of great photos and doodads for the class and she also encouraged us to bring anything else we wanted to use. I recently inherited my grandfather's watchmaking bench, stuffed full of teeny tiny treasures! I randomly brought a small case full of watch parts and used them in combination with Mikel's photos of birds.

For this one I used a watch back for the bezel and I also used a watch part for the finding.

For this pendent I used a pewter bezel. I picked it from a local Maple Ridge store, Kellie's Beads Boutique.

This was the bezel that was provided for the class. It's much larger than the other two above which meant it took me double the time to layout the design...decisions, decisions!

I know which one is my favourite, which one is yours? I'm curious to see if it's the same!

Oh and they're having another Fraser Valley Bead Show in the Spring; March 25, 26 and 27th. Maybe I'll see you there?


  1. I like number 2, number 1 reminds me too much of the evil crows at Hayward Lake..."backfat, backfat"!

  2. They are all too cute it's hard to pick. I think I like the one made out of the back of a watch. It is very sweet in it's small simplicity.

  3. I like the middle one!

  4. Thanks for letting me know which ones you like best guys! Looks like number two is the winner, winner chicken dinner! but the birds in the pendents aren't chickens, just so we're clear =)

  5. I love them all but I have to say the first one is my favourite!
    Really interesting work Lysa.
