Have you found a pendant that would work with what you're creating - but because it's carved from Ivory, it's illegal to buy in the US? Or it's made from Carnelian, Garnet, Cinnabar, Coral or Jade and is just too expensive to make it feasible for the piece you're designing? Or you are eco-conscious and prefer to use alternatives to real Bone or Coral...
I think you'll love my line of pendants that I call "Fabulous Faux". These pendants are transformed using the same process I developed to alter the Bamboo Tiles and Skull Beads. My favorite is the Faux Garnet pendants - such a rich color that really mimics the colors of Garnet. Take a look at this Kuan Yin pendant in Faux Carnelian:

All of these, plus more, are available in my Etsy shop.
