Lately I have been working on new paper and resin pendants. The designs have been heavily influenced by Art Deco design. Beautiful geometric shapes, repeating patterns and just the sense of class and style that Art Deco design emanates makes it very attractive for me as an artist.
With these pendants I have continued to use silver and gold metallic paper as well as blocks of bold colour. I have also kept the rectangular shape of the pendant but in the future I would like to make some with more complex shapes.
The backs of these pendants are also finished with domed clear resin over a heavy scrapbook paper backing. From the photo below you can also get a sense of how thick the pendants themselves are with both sides domed with clear resin.
These pendants have matching stud earrings. The earrings are also made using the same gold, silver and coloured papers, domed over with clear resin. The backs are made from a silver metal that is free from nickel and cadium. They also come with silicone backs that are so soft and comfortable. I have really sensitive ears and usually hate wearing earrings because of the itchy feeling I get when I wear studs, but with these earrings I don't have any issues!
