pretty pendant
this is a version of an original i saw on etsy it is absolutely beautiful you can see it using the link below.
this is a fairly simple project to do, it just takes a little time to let it bake and then for the paint and glaze to dry. i only put that its reasonably priced because it is to buy all of the initial materials you need, buy you can make a ton really quick. but have fun and i hope you like this tutorial, its my first one!

    finally, add the two jump rings on the top and lace it up with the ribbon and tie a bow and viola! i usually add a little guper glie in some inconspicuous plsaces to hold the bow together so it wont just fall apart.
