welcome 2009

Happy new year to everyone!! I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and enjoyed themselves!
It is cold, cold, cold and I just looked out the window and it's snowing!!! I had a lovely break and am all ready to go for the new year. It's 2009 - in September, Dougs & I will have been together for a decade already! wah, time flies!!!!
I made some jewellery during the break, of course. One of the things I made was a pendant for my mum. It's made with a piece of mangosteen - that's a tropical fruit and happens to be my mom's favorite. She cut off the top of it and flattened & dried it. I made a silver pendant to hold the piece of mangosteen. Instead of gluing the piece into the pendant or using bezel, I made some rivets to hold it in place. Here's a photo:
