Carved Flower Pendants

I began creating these necklaces, and then consulted on how to do them more effectively using RiverValley's tutorial. I really liked how these turned out. I was able to create many different looking flowers using simple shape cutters and textures.
I textured the pendants using etch and pearl tools and needles. I then antiqued the pendants using burnt umber paints. They are strung on twisted nylon cord. I'm trying to learn restraint in my jewelry creation. My step-mother always told me "less is more" but I've been reluctant to believe it. :)
