Thing-a-Day – January 19 – Southern magnolia pod pendant
Day 19 of the Thing-a-Day Challenge
Materials: seed pod, drill with 1/8″ bit, neckwire or chain with clasp.
I collected this seed pod from a Southern magnolia tree in our neighbor’s yard years ago and it has stayed very stable, sitting in my studio waiting for a purpose. I decided to continue my pod-as-pendants theme, this time choosing this much more sturdy specimen.
I drilled the woody stem with a 1/8″ drill bit and simply strung it on a neckwire – didn’t even seal it (we’ll see whether that was a bad idea). So simple! And such a beautiful object.
