Yesterday I got an eagerly awaited package. 15 new pendants! I opened them to discover beautiful square silver lockets with glass on either side, in which I could put a double sided painting. I absolutely love the idea of the glass, and the double sided possibilities. As soon as I removed the packing peanuts, chased Margot, threw away half eaten packing peanuts, and cut open the cardboard and bubble wrap carefully protecting each pendant, I realized I should have measured out the dimensions before ordering. 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches is a lot bigger than you might think. The other square pendants I have are an inch by an inch. Wow, that 1/2 inch on either side sure makes a difference. Not only in size, but in the possibility of what I can paint on there! I could easily fit 4 or 5 dogs (on each side), instead of 1 or 2! Yet on the other hand, will enough people want to wear this size to make it worth my while to offer it as an option? I think so. Here are some pictures of the new pendant. Please let me know what you think!
Here is a photo with a longer cord. Please keep in mind everyone has their own "perfect length" depending on width of neck, size of bosom, etc. When I sell my necklaces, I'm selling the painting. I expect (and suggest) that many buyers will put the pendant on their own chain of choice.
