These pendants are super-sized compared to my previous pendants, which allows for more room for creativity. Each pendant uses repurposed paper or other ephemera.
The bottom pendant is actually the most meaningful to me. It is made with a copy of a letter in the background, in which the writer is asking emphatically if she meant what she wrote in her last letter to him...."please tell me you didn't mean everything you wrote." The stamps and the postage mark are the original from the actual envelop that the letter came in. The picture is what I imagine the female in the letter looks like.
I found a this letter with a beautiful collection of letters when assisting to clean out a house after the recipient's son passed away. There was no one who wanted the letters, and although I didn't know the recipient personally, I was moved by the writer's admiration for the woman.
