Reversible pendants

Marvellous Loving pendant I’ve been experimenting with reversible pendants, with a different but related sentiment on each side. This is part of the Nights at the Circus series; the other side says “antic dreaming”, and this is the first prototype. It’s basically fine, but there’s one assembly problem, which is that the depth of the ribbon loop is noticeable, and it takes an annoying amount of pressure to keep the pendant together while the glue dries. Normally I use thinner mousseline ribbon, but I don’t have any narrow enough for this design (the whole thing is 30mm across, and anything wider than 3mm overwhelms the design) so I may have to experiment with using an interlayer with a cutout for the loop.
