My newest piece and Mixed media Monday 'I've been wanting to.....'





UPDATE: Well I've been so busy working on a commission this week and I'm afraid I can't show you til it's all finished, it's a series of 3 paintings and I'm nearly finished number one! I can't wait to see it all together it's been quite a challenge.
Today I saw this weeks prompt for Mixed Media Monday and thought that my recent piece in my last post was perfect as I had been want to try making this type of necklace/pendant for quite a while, and it was the first time that I had used a cabochan. So this is my entry for Mixed Media Monday.

(this next bit is from my previous post)

I just had to share this one with you as I'm feeling quite proud of it, I tried some new things with this one and I feel like it turned out quite delicate and pretty, its also available in my etsy shop!

It has been made from a print of an original painting titled 'Precious Moment'.

I glued it inside the raw brass lace edge setting with a clear acrylic magnifying cabochon on top.

I then used a combination of a vintage brown cat's eye bead chain and antique copper curb chain 3mm to sit it on. I would really like to learn more about jewellery making as I enjoyed fiddling with this one this afternoon. I love using my prints for wearable art.
