Ten new pendants from paintings

A new approach to making these pendants – instead of covering the digital images of my little paintings with two-part resin, I discovered some small glass tiles that fit perfectly in the bezel backs. Once the image is securely attached to the back of the glass with a diamond finish (i.e. totally clear) glue and trimmed it can be glued into the bezel base. I am pleased with the way they have turned out – the backs are not brilliant quality, but they are silver plated so look nice. Like the previous ones (see here) these are 1 inch or 2.5 cm square. Using the glass tiles is easy for assembly, and considerably less toxic than the resin. I am tentatively offering them for sale – I am thinking $20 (Aus) plus postage and packing, and they will come with a snake-type chain. Any takers?!

      1. So you Anna … they invite a closer look …
        Oh .. I’ve just thought of those Children’s jigsaw blocks.. they had a different design on each side to be turned over and made into one large picture .. Every one just a *hint of the larger picture from which it was taken 🙂

        1. It’s interesting you say that Poppy – at one point I was working out ways of presenting the actual paintings like that, joined together so that they could be turned any way. They are quite chunky, so can easily stand, I have a pile of them by my TV! I was also wondering if I could put several of these pendants on one chain – you are giving me lots of ideas!

          1. I love these Anna! You’re really focusing…As to more than one on one chain, great idea but only if it looks like a fixed necklace, rather than a whole lot sitting loose, which would not be a good look. Good luck with these. I think your pricing sounds reasonable.

            1. Thanks Janina – yes, each variation is an improvement I think. I agree, if there is more than one on a necklace I would have to put in some kind of locking bead between them. It might be all too busy though anyway. I’m glad you think the pricing is ok, it is something that is not easy to settle on!

  1. You’re on a winner of an idea, Anna. These look fantastic and very very classy! I like them all. Has anybody bought the top-row left one yet and the second-to-bottom-row right one? If not, I’ll buy those two.

  2. I, too, am a big fan of the square format. I’ve just added a line of small works (4″x 4″ and up) covered in resin and wish I had this option for the sake of my lungs if nothing else. Your compositions are absolutely lovely!
