A Piece of Jewellery

This is the first piece of jewellery that I have ever made. I used the 1.5" memory glass from Ranger. The image on this side was stamped onto an alcohol inked background on glossy cardstock.

The image on this side was stamped directly onto the glass with olive stazon and then triple-embossed.
I didn't have any of the lovely memory glass frames so I had to improvise a bit. I backed the second image with glossy cardstock as for the first image and then stuck them together using glossy accents. I then embossed a couple of layers of gold around all of the edges to finish them off. I stuck the jump ring on with glossy accents too (not so sure how long it will last) and hooked another couple of jump rings through that. I finally added the chain. I don't think it's too bad for a first try. I do wish we could get Tim Holtz supplies here in Ireland more easily, then we wouldn't have to make do.
