Did you ever make a thing without thinking about what you were making? Well, here's an idea I came up with and it's now up to the public to decide it if's worthwhile or not.
Starting with a plain French mother of pearl cross, I added, to the front, a gold dresden paper star as well as a reproduction Victorian die cut (embossed) depicting the Madonna & Child - the Virgin Mary with the Infant Jesus. To the reverse, I added another dresden star as well as a paper sentiment that reads O Come Let Us Adore Him. To the top of the star I added pink rayon ribbon and then attached a tag that reads "A Gift for Thee." With some added gold glitter hearts and pink Washi tape, the bag of the tag bears a black stamp of a bird. Most of the tag has been left blank so you can add a sentiment.
The cross measures 2-3/8" high (from top of gold star to bottom) x 1-9/16" wide. To wear or to suspend as an ornament, just clip the top pink ribbon and add your own cording or ribbon.
One of a Kind - plain mother of pearl crosses are quite hard to come by these days!
