I have become a fan of Melanie LeGrand’s work. You can see it here on her Instagram page or in Angelic Whimsey, her etsy shop. She also sells on Facebook which is where I got this sweet little deer pendant. 

I really love soldered pendants and hope to learn soldering myself someday. But until then, I know where to get great pieces! The pendant is small, so I backed it with a rustic blank from Vintaj to create a larger pendant profile. 

I made the necklace out of rustic pink feldspar rectangles and small jasper spacers. When I opened the bag of feldspar, there was a carved leaf bead in there that really echoed the look of the leaf in the pendant, so I used that too. Meant to be!
