We headed out to a bead store in Spring so that I could buy some photo xfer plates for my precious metal clay jewelry. With these plates you can take anything and turn it into a pendant/charm. Right now, I'm interested in turning thumb prints and children's art into pendants. Here is some examples of what is possible..
Not my art or pictures but i didn't want to hotlink and steal bandwidth. I plan on replacing them with my own work asap.
The only real downside I can see is that the materials and process are not cheap. It jacks the end cost up quite a bit. The small thumbprints go for sixty dollars and the children's drawings are priced from $80-$175 but it is a unique process and in my opinion totally cool!
They didn't have everything but are suppose to get it in soon.
