Vintage Valentine's Day Card Necklaces

I don't generally make holiday themed stuff too much. I'll do some Christmas-y earrings or maybe a Santa pendant here and there, but they generally don't hold much interest for me. When I saw this cool tin the other day at a favorite haunt, I knew I'd have to make at least a couple of pendants
Thought not usually the sort of thing I go for, I've always found vintage Valentine's Day cards alluring. I'm not quite sure if it's the quality of the illustrations, the pun-y innocence of the sentiments or some combination thereof, but I do find their just-shy-of-cloying sweetness compelling.
