Pottery Shard Pendants
Over the years, I thought about the box. The shards were pretty coarse, so I thought that I might throw them in the tumbler and see what happened. I did with mixed results. Some of the pieces had nicely worn down edges. Others... well... they completely dissolved and created a grainy sludge at the bottom of the barrel.
I decided to do a soldering experiment and used the tumbled pottery shards to create the pendants. They're not perfect, but I'm glad that I finally got around to working with them. I still have a box left and plan on revising this idea and expounding upon it.
