Quickie thrift store pendant update

I'm back working on jewelry... Tonight was a quick update to a pendant I found at the Lions Gate Thrift Shop this afternoon. I paid $4.50 for this - kind of expensive for me but I knew I could make it look pretty with only a teeny tiny bit of work.

All I wanted to do was add a wood backing. Easy!

I added glue to the metal pendant then stuck it to the scrap wood. I knew I could trim the wood down then easily sand it so it was flush with the edges of the metal.

Here's the final update... It took me less than an hour and probably cost $5 in total. I added a jump ring to the top - I think it looks nicer than the original clasp.

Love my new to me pendant. I added it to this choker.

Next I need to focus on prepping for this weekend's Sunday Crafternoon. Can't wait!
