Discovering 2014: Love Pendant

Discovering 2014 is a personal goal to complete a daily project throughout the year!

Yesterday's project was the Love Pendant, and since I didn't get to it I made sure to squeeze it in today!

I followed the very simple instructions from the H is for Handmade blog. Since the kids were using my computer I traced the lettering she used and molded mine from that. I also used my 18-gauge wire and silicone tipped round-nose pliers.

Then I simply molded the wire. I ended up mainly doing it by hand and only used the pliers occasionally.

I temporarily put the pendant on a necklace, but all of my current jump rings are clunky so I've already taken it back off. I think using a thin chain to loop it on would look a lot better.

You could do this with a lot of words and it's really fast!

Now onward to today's actual project.... Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops and Garlic Cheddar Biscuits! Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
