I received the shipment of jewelry-making supplies I’d ordered and regardless of my other priorities, I just had to dig right in. It’s like Christmas morning.
I’ve been making Catalina themed jewelry based on my artwork for some time. I’ve made pendants using miniature reproductions of a watercolor painting mounted on shell but I’ve been longing to create something new.
The new pendants I just finished use the same watercolor painting but mounted on silver this time.
This is mounted using the same method as the original pendants. The painting is printed on photo paper, cut to size, then encased in a thick layer of crystal-clear, shiny resin.
The newer version is quite a bit smaller than the shell-mounted pendant at only 3/4″ x 5/8″ but I’ve had people ask for a smaller pendant. It’s a bit small for my personal taste but I decided to give it a go. I may try hanging the pendant on silver chain (the pendant in the picture is hanging on cotton cord). I only wish precious metals weren’t so expensive right now.
