Painted Pendants - In Time for Valentines Day

I wanted to get these out here because there's still time to have them in time for Valentines Day.  These are varnished and ready to ship out.  :-)  Thanks so much to everyone for the incredible support I've received on this project.  There are some things I want to tell you about why they're here and what they're for, but I'll write it when the time is right.  For now let's say: they're like story fragments.  That's why they come with...  well, story fragments.  Synechdoche.
