Illinois based Jennifer Putzier is a long time Etsy seller and a successful one at that.  One of her 3 stores is Beadeux which offers laser cut pendants designed specifically for making cross stitch jewelry.

Jennifer is adept with 2-D software so she is able to create her unique jewelry supply line.  The pendants are laser cut from a variety of materials including salvaged wood, bamboo and acrylic.

Some wonderful shapes from her store include whimsical bow tie pendants although she also offers the more conventional rectangles, rounds and tear drops.

You can also do beaded cross stitch with these! Instead of doing the typical cross with the floss, use say Fireline and do just one diagonal stitch with a bead included.  These designs will be beadafabulous!

One new category in her store are her floss organizers.  I really think  these are also perfect as pendants in their own right.  Jennifer also offers complete project kits.  My favorite is her rain cloud one!
