Announcement   Special orders welcome! Sometimes you want to keep your favorite player or team close, but your office frowns upon wearing jerseys and sherseys every day. Or maybe you have a favorite player and don't want to drop a couple of hundred bucks on a jersey. Or maybe you already have your favorite player's jersey but you want to wear their FACE too.

Whatever the desire, these handmade pendants are fun way to show your team spirit. Every trading card is matched with the best way to display the player or logo; domed cabochon glass circles to make the picture pop or crystal clear flat glass that allows the image shine.

Each piece is hand cut, hand sealed and put together with -- you guessed it -- my hands, which means each piece is unique. Be the only one in a stadium of 72,000 or a sports bar of 72 wearing a Cole Hamels, an Arian Foster, or a Nationals W around your neck.

About

I can do that!

Was killing time talking to my friend while we were in line for a movie when she started telling me how busy she was was making fan art pieces, and my mind started to wander towards all the ignored comics and trading cards sitting in boxes back at my place.

So I began messing around making necklaces out of old trading cards for myself and my friends which re-ignited a once dormant card addiction. On my second day at the card shop looking through old, low-value cards the helpful owner asked what I was going to do with all the cards I was buying.

“You promise you won’t get mad… “

“Okay.”

Sheepishly,”I’m going to cut them up for necklaces. Don’t be mad.”

“Huh. But you wouldn’t do that to a rare… “

“Nonononono. No.”

“Awesome.”

After a lot of trial and error (and finding out it wasn't so easy after all), I found a way to make pieces I could be proud to wear myself before even think of selling them online. The great thing is that working on these pendants while watching the ball game is a great combination of two of my favorite things.

Hello!

Welcome to my little corner of Etsy, which is a smaller little corner of my place on internet.

I make pendants out of old trading cards (don't worry, I check to see if they're valuable collectables first) for a fun way to show support for your favorite player or team in a unique way without breaking the bank.
