Mini Painting Pendants

I've been working on more of my mini painting pendants. These are all landscapes of Cape Cod.  First I create a 1"x1" watercolor painting, then scan in high resolution and have copies made, then I go over each one with artist grade colored pencils so that each is unique. Finally I wrap and solder each and solder a sterling silver bail. I plan on working on some other ideas: flowers..whatever else catches my fancy!
