The name in this piece was made by bending soft sterling wire into letters. The chain is from an old necklace I recycled, so dig through your jewelry box and reinvent whatever you're not using.

I made these for Halloween, but now that they're hanging out on my desk, I'm going to keep them there year-round! It's like having a line-up of my kids as action figures and I love it!
Cut out the best part of your favorite photos, mount them on Clear Photo Film printed with a graphic design, and dome them up to make an awesome photo display for your home or office. See this related video for a how-to.

And here's an example I made using the same technique, but printing in color and cutting around my lovies. I leave it open on my desk when not in use:
