CHINESE

These ancient-looking polymer clay pendants are from kkennedydesignsTOO.etsy.com.

They were made by taking a mold of an antique Chinese chops. These chops are stamp used as a form of signature, so each chops is unique to begin with. Different color and sculpting variations add to the uniqueness of each pendant.

  4. As I understand the use of chops they are a type of stamp and there for are backwards so when they are used the stamp correctly.

  5. I have to admit that without knowing Chinese, I have no idea whether these characters are right or not, and I can see how people may be offended when the symbols they understand are misused. I definitely would not like it if somebody decorated something with misspelled Russian words, for example. However, again, without understanding the hieroglyphs, all I can do is admire the choice of colors and proportions of these pieces, and I still think they are beautiful for these reasons. I do apologize if I hurt any body's feelings by featuring these pendants...

  8. Cheap designer cheap omega watches are already practical, but watch them get further reasonable as designers gifts for girls, brands, and distributors further try to outpace each other in the race to get the nod and the patronage of many fashion swiss rolex consumers. Being fashionable does not mean you have to invest hefty amounts of dollars to fashion catier pendents efforts. Fashionable but cheap designer handbags surely could help complete the total getup of the sophisticated softshell jackets.
