New Artwork Project – Pendants (on Glass!) for an online Swap

Over on, where I hang out most days, there are a lot of swaps. Swaps, for those of you who have no idea, are where someone sets up a thread, inviting other artists on the site to play the game. In this case, to make a pendant (or three); the artist then sends them in, the ‘host’ trades them out, then sends them back. End result: each artist gets one pendant back for each pendant entered, each of those from a different artist! And all for ‘free’… after all, we did pay for our mailing costs and art supplies!

Well, I’ve done glass a lot longer than I’ve painted (glass equals 30 yrs next September, and painting equals 3 yrs next March), so I announced (Hah!) that I’d be painting on stained glass scraps.

There was a lot of interest. (Some have already picked theirs out in advance, something not normally done.) Oh yeah, and I went overboard. I made 26. Now, I don’t need 26 pendants back, of course not! And there aren’t 26 artists playing either. Which ones I send it has not been determined yet, and doesn’t have to be until about Christmas-time.

Here they all are: there will be bails attached before mailing out, and in the case of the clear ones, holes drilled.

    Lucky swappees at iATC!

    And these pendants truly are gorgeous! They make me think of insects and plants caught in Amber, but in a more colorful medium.

    26! I wish I could get more ambitious. Like you, the changeable, but always gray weather gets to me. But all I want to do is sleep.
