A few "Penny Portraits" floating in a glass pendant locket.

Hand Cut Miniature Silhouette by Silhouette Artist Kathryn Flocken
Below are the Silhouette Pendants that I am making myself, cut entirely by hand. I'm pretty sure I am the only Silhouette Artist making pendants this way (most -if not all- of the others are traced in Photoshop, filled in with black, shrunk down, then printed out).
So I thought to myself, "Why not make them the REAL way? Hand cut them...that IS what you do!" So I set out to see just how small I could cut the little guys. I got them down to about an inch and a half in size, and showed them to a friend. She said, "That's pretty good...but when you show me one the size of your thumbnail...THEN I'll be impressed." So...a few days later I showed my friend the cutting above.
I just love a challenge.
Custom Silhouette Pendant in silver with a domed bubble. $40
Includes cord, gift box and Certificate of Authenticity.
This Silhouette Pendant is a glass locket that opens and closes. I mount the silhouette onto a piece of vellum, so the silhouette can be easily removed. A piece of lace or colored paper can be placed into the locket, and the silhouette put on top. Voila! Close the latch and there you have an ever changing piece of jewelry that will match whatever you are wearing. $40.
Comes with cord, gift box and Certificate of Authenticity.
This silhouette pendant is much like the one above, except it is placed inside the glass and left there to float. Includes box, cord and Certificate of Authenticity. $30
