Vintage Domino Pendants


I enjoyed a few days in my studio creating these
pendants from vintage dominoes and scraps of old
greeting cards and calendars.  There's even an old
postage stamp in there!  And, they're reversible! 

I've listed 25 of them in my etsy shop!

  3. Just got back from visiting your esty shop. You have some fun things!
    I like that you don't polish the silver. I don't polish mine.
    You have a treasure trove of beautiful china. Wish I had the space and $$.
    You have more creatively in your little finger then I have, counting all my digits.

  4. They are very nice. I like the one with the white dots on it; very unusual!

  15. How CHARMING! Especially to us older folk whose childhood evenings spent over those old yellowed, clicking little tiles are fond memories. I was just lately looking for some of the my-era ones online, and found several of the old Bakelite sets, which I assume ours probably was. They were yellow as elephant's teeth, gilded with the enjoyable moments of many busy fingers.

    Next visit from the GRANDS will include a graduation from GO FISH to dominoes, I think. What's not to love.

    Continually amazed at your artistry and talents,

    rachel
