My husband is awesome!

So I've been trying since I was about 15 to find a good picture that looked even remotely like the symbol for the Penndragon vampire family in my books. I've never found one. Ever. And I should explain the fact that I am in fact extraordinary picky about such things.

It's a Celtic cross with a rose. Now I didn't want it to look like a symbol of a rose like they used on old coats of arms. I wanted it to look like a real rose. There in lay the problem. Everything I found looked like it had a Tudor rose on it. That was so not what I was looking for. Or I would find one that looked like it was wrapped in barbed wire. *Gasps* For the love of all that is good and holy, NO!!!!!

Well my hubby is quite talented graphically. And he's been learning 3D programs too, so I asked him if he thought he could make me what I wanted. So we put our brains together and I researched crosses until I found the perfect shape, and he made it for me!

Then I poked it... and prodded it....and I'm sure annoyed the heck out of him, until it was absolutely perfect!!! And this is what we got!

Thank you, sweetie pie!!! I love it so much!!!!!!!!!! You kick booty!

Now if someone could just make it into a necklace for me, life would be perfect. ;)

What a good hubby! :)
Wow, that’s really beautiful, Lesley! What an absolutely gorgeous pendant that would make. I think you need to get your talented husband to take a class on jewelry making so he can craft that beautiful graphic rendering into a necklace! :-D

Wow. That is gorgeous. He is definitely awesome. Maybe you could find one of the jewelry makers on Twitters to make it for you?

Earth_Mommy, oh you have a point! I didn't even think about that! When I'm not so broke, I'll have to look into it!
