Up to snuff

Well, here are the little faux Sevres snuff box pendants I’ve been slaving over for a week.  Much work to create these little things, but I’m pleased with the results. Once again, I called on my huge stockpile of jewelry findings. I found the boxes on clearance at Michael’s. They were originally just pewter colored metal, but I gilded them then decoupaged on images and sealed with three coats of clear gloss sealer so the images look almost like porcelain. Then I attached the jewels and ribbons. All you’d need to do is add a gold chain for a necklace.
