I've used an image from an art book featuring Alphonse Mucha, a Czechoslovakian artist born in 1860 often well known for his many Art Nouveau posters. This one depicts Spring from his Seasons series and it makes a wonderful rustic resin pendant. I've added a just a touch of opalescent glass shard glitter in both layers of resin that really catches the light as well as 3 Swarovski sequins.
This piece measures 53mm long x 36mm (approximately 2 1/16" x 1 3/8"). It has one hole at the top for stringing.
These pendants involve many steps in the creating process but are well worth the time involved for the final lovely and unique piece, perfect for your designing pleasure.
Each bezel is a labor of love, handmade from brass sheet and formed specially for each picture I choose. The bezels are filled with resin - often a series of two pourings so I can add different pieces of ephemera - glass shard glitter, sequins, sprinkles of mica or any number of other treasures. Once cured the resin is buffed to different levels of a matte finish to give them an aged appearance. The backs and sides are given a patina as well to add to that overall feeling of vintage or antique.
I want to thank Marina Rios for sharing her tips and tricks in creating these fabulous rustic resin pieces!
All of my glass beads, resin creations, enameled copper and bronze clay pieces are handmade by me in my home studio in Tucson, Arizona. I work in both borosilicate (hard glass) and soda lime glass (soft glass). All of my beads are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln and the bead holes cleaned.
I ship in a nice sturdy 2"x3"x6" cardboard box so you can be sure your goodies will arrive safe and sound and in one piece!
