Giggles and Grins - Cute, pretty and perfect tile pendants

When you take a browse around the handmade community out there, you'll find that that there are a lot (and I mean a LOT) of craft and artisan designers out there making and selling tile necklaces.

They use everything from
coins to scrabble tiles, glass tiles, dominoes and many more options for the backs of these cute and inventive pieces and there's a wonderful, almost endless variety of opportunities for creativity.

That said, there's always a few in a crowd that stand out and above all the rest.

Dawn and Ronda
Wilcox are one of those few. Their shop "Giggles and Grins" on Etsy is filled with some of the best scrabble and glass tile pendants I've ever seen and they are all portrayed with clarity and precision that makes them nearly irresistible once you get your first peek.

Dawn and Ronda started out on Etsy in 2008 while Dawn was looking for a way to help fund her children's gymnastic dreams, and she's done unbelievably well! Or, well it's not unbelievable at all, really. Their pieces are gorgeous so it's very believable indeed.

Even if the tile-pendant style isn't your usual choice, you won't want to miss this wonderful shop. There truly is something for everyone. In fact, I have an eye on one of her pieces myself that I want to hang from the rear view mirror in my car!

These beautiful images that Dawn and Ronda Wilcox use in her work are created by other people and are copyrighted. So the items are so beautiful. I found my illustrations in her works, I'm the author, I am an illustrator. Just apply the resin is not the art. I also saw many other copyrighted images from other autors that are in dwilcox shop for sale.
