YumYumPendants: Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/26) CLOSED

Saturday, December 12, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Today, I have the pleasure to introduce a brand-new Etsy shop called YumYumPendants. Ela, the talented artist behind YumYumPendants, offers affordable glass tile and scrabble tile pendants. Right now, she has over 200 beautiful designs in several categories: holiday, birds/wildlife, plants/flowers/trees, patterns/symbols, quotes/words, initials/monograms, and miscellaneous. You can get one of these nice little pendants for only $5.50! Stocking stuffers, party favors, gifts for girlfriends - and remember to get a few for yourself.


Ela uses a mix of both new and vintage scrabble tiles as the base for her pendants. To make her beautiful designs, first she makes prints on high quality paper, cuts them to size, and then adheres them to the tile. The images are then covered them with jeweler's grade resin and cured for at least 24 hours before attaching the bails. Ela does a lot of the art herself as well, and uses some of her original photographs.


I received the beautiful Pink and Yellow Butterfly on Swirls for review. This is one of many designs that I love from YumYumPendants! The pendant is very well made, with utmost attention to every detail. The colors are lovely and bright. The pendant came complete with a nice ball chain. These chains are made to order, and you can pick any length up to 20 inches. 


You can find YumYumPendants on Etsy, Twitter, and Facebook. Ela also has another Etsy shop that features her original art creations - in Ela's own words: offbeat gifts, surreal art and weird jewelry.

    These are so cute. I checked out the website and have several favorites: blurred lights, butterfly, bite me, yellow hippie van with peace sign, and stupid lamb.

    These are really cute! There are so many great designs! One of my favorites is the "ICE BLUE BIRD ON YELLOW CHERRY BLOSSOMS #0037", but I also love the pink guitar with the peace sign, and the cute little penguin with the red scarf!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!
