What materials did you use? This pendant was actually a clip-on earring from an estate sale "mystery box" of jewelry and trinkets. The flower was simply an open "frame." From scraps of brown suede leather, I cut pieces to fit inside each heart-shaped petal's "frame." The metal frame had a slightly concave interior surface, to which I applied a multi-surface adhesive, then sort of "snapped" the suede petals into place.The piece had a plastic cabochon in the center prong setting, which I replaced with a pearl one (scavenged from another piece of "junk" jewelry) , then covered it with a bead cap before closing the prongs. I altered the existing finding on the back to create a bail for suede lacing, to finish off the necklace.

What are you most proud of? That the piece turned out looking like it was always meant to be a pendant.
