    I'm working on necklaces with chicken pendants (for people not chickens!)

    Here is the first batch...

    They are pretty cute...all of them are handmade (not by me!) so they are all slightly different. I have 40+ of them...in 12 different colors. They have the stringing holes on their backs & out through their bellies--so they are made to be pendants or I could put several on one necklace.

    I'll go upload the photos of the beads to photobucket. I just bought enough to finish two necklaces (for chicken-loving friends for holiday gifts) but wanted to see how much other interest there would be in the rest if I were to start making these! [​IMG]

    These are all approx the same size as a quarter--beak tip to tail tip.

    And the colors are actually richer than this photo shows. The lightest one is a bright white.

    Oh--I didn't make the pendants! I WISH I was that talented! LOL But no...I didn't. [​IMG]

    I'm just seeing if anyone would be interested in necklaces with a chicken pendant?? I got the beads & things to make necklaces but didn't want to waste my time if no one wanted any. [​IMG]

    LOL Cool! At least there is some interest. I have the potential to make 40 with the pendants I have--but I need more beads for the rest. I was thinking of doing some with large, glass beads and some with lots of seed beads (multiple strands). I just need to figure out that part! [​IMG]
