I really do love making my oriel pendants. They are unique...each one is carefully assembled, sometimes with one-of-a-kind materials, vintage photos, ribbons, embellishments. This lovely lady was an actual cigarette trading card from Mexico, one that will never be seen in this way again (happily purchased by Melissa last year, blessings to her). Each oriel is hand-soldered and the decorative solder beading is always different...like icing on cake -- it never comes out the same way twice --- giving each oriel a genuine handmade look and feel.
