Ice Resin Blog Hop: Portal Pendants

Do you remember the portal pendants I made for the Song Lore Saturday inspiration of Squeeze's "Pulling Mussels from the Shell"? Well, I recently finished them, each with a special unique collage!
All three of them have a fragment of an old postcard with Asian ship and water imagery in the background.  They also each contain a shell that I picked up at the beach in St. Maartin while on the Bead Cruise.
Each one has its own little collection of metal charms that reminded me of portholes and compasses, to go with the ship and beach theme.  There are also gears and pearls and little bits of glass to tie all the colors together.  I like them because they remind me of the Cruise, like little wearable memory boxes!
