Lisa Woinarski of Lillipilli Designs submitted this beautiful butterfly. Lisa described her butterfly pendant process; "This little butterfly fluttered out of my head one day and into PMC. The hinges mean that the wings actually flap and move as they sit in the necklace. I used one of my batik textures from a photopolymer plate. I applied liver of sulur patina to give the wings some detail and a gorgeous rainbow patina color. I then polished the high points to let the silver shine through.
Carrie Benvenuti of Uranium Cafe submitted a pendant she calls Arizona Sunrise. Her pendant is inspired from the state flag of Arizona. At the right time in the morning, just before the sun rises above the mountains, the sun's ray beams through the sky is an inspiration to see. The body of the pendant is one inch by one inch with a cold connection at the hinge. Carrie's Arizona Sunrise pendant opens to reveal the lovely sunrise that inspired her.
