Margie and Me - The Portrait of the Lady with the Ermine Part 2

I know last week I showed you my first Margie and Me creation, the brooch/pendant combo, which I'm lovingly calling the penrooch (or the brendant, whadda ya' think?). Well, the idea wouldn't go away, so I created a second one using the colors of this week's challenge.

I asked the lady with the ermine and she told me she'd wear it any day of the week, as a brooch...

...or a pendant.
(By the way, now that I'm lookin' at that picture, does anyone else notice the set of guns on that rat?!)

I'm also slowly working through my set of copper bobby pins that I bought. I created these yesterday, and I'm pretty sure that I was channeling the cubist period. They are a bright fuschia/magenta color with a little bit of a metallic finish. They can be found here in my shop.

Finally, I created another medallion pendant. This one has picasso jasper rounds (because you know I have a problem) and some deep amber size 8's. I'm not listing it in my shop just yet because I'm not crazy about the chain. Any suggestions? I like the gunmetal, it just may be that this particular gunmetal is too shiny. I dunno, what do you think?

Last thing, please check out the Sale section of my shop, I dropped a bunch of stuff in there this morning to try to move it out to make room for some new stuff for the holidays.

Okay, the real reason we're all here! Leave your link below so we can all hop around and see what you made for Margie and Me!
I'm going to Zumba this morning, but when I get back, I'll do some blog hopping.
Thanks so much to those of you who created this time around I had a great time and I hope you did also.

  6. Marcie, your brooch/pendant is beautiful...and looks fantastic with the sweater you're modeling it on.
    I love those cube bobby pins. I wonder if they would stay in my hair....because with pretty hairpins like that, who needs jewelry? And I love your new medallion pendant. I like the chain that you're showing it with as is!

  7. Thank you for your kind words! This is just gorgeous. I would love to bead like this but I get interrupted so much I'd probably stitch it to my pants! LOL - Beautiful work!!!
