map pendant


wow i actually made something today

i started it ages ago
and it just kinda sat there on my desk
so today i pulled it together with a few stitches

i'm not sure it's finished
so it'll probably hang around a bit longer
but it's a start eh?


i like it
but
i think it "needs" something
what do you think?

oooh I do quite love it! Am almost thinking perfection - is there a compass needle?

Its gorgeous - agree with a compass needle a lickle metal arrow could look cool. However if you left as is it would still be fab tbh x

It's so pretty. I could see it with a tiny gold colour charm of some description, or a tiny bit of gold metallic thread or ribbon.

thank-you for the feedback :)
i can't really fit anything else inside the pendant but i may hang something else on the chain or use a cord/ribbon instead of chain :)

I was thinking, the charm would be good, like a ships wheel, with n s e w on it, have seen them, but with small piece of map on the back, that way a double sided pendant! Which ever way u feel like wearing it ......I absolutely love it though, ur so clever x x

It's beautiful. I keep thinking treasure when I look at it. If you are adding a charm or a little something extra I would add something that represents 'treasure' something that is precious to you.

I really think it's captivating just as it is. If you really wanted to add something, maybe a bead on the chain; perhaps a red bead shaped in an "x" for x-marks-the-spot and to compliment the red x stiches already in the pendant.
