Flowers in a Window Garden Still Life Handpainted Necklace
To further carry along the feeling of looking out into a garden, I have painstakingly hand painted wood beads in bright shades of blue, red, green, pink and white. Each bead had three base coats of acrylic paint applied before the final coat of paint was added. The effect is a beautiful riot of color reminiscent of a garden in full, glorious bloom. A sealer has also been applied to the beads to protect the paint and provide a glossy finish.
Interspersed between each hand painted wood bead is a textured copper spacer bead to give the necklace a polished and finished look. The beads are strung on green 2 mm waxed cotton cord which continues the garden theme. The cord ends are finished with coiled copper wire components of my own original design and provide a beautiful, elegant looking finish to the necklace. More importantly, they are very secure - you will never have to worry about the cord slipping out of these components.
Painted in acrylic paint on a piece of circular bone, the pendant has had several coats of sealer applied to protect the paint and to provide a glossy finish. Between each coat of sealer, the pendant was sanded with fine sandpaper which results in a wonderfully smooth finish.
I have fashioned a hand crafted copper hook clasp with a spiral end that completes this gorgeous work of art. This necklace is one of a kind; there will never be another like it as I don't do repeats of my paintings or my hand painted beads. Once a batch of beads is done, there will never be another set the same. The back of the pendant has been signed and dated by me as well.
The necklace measures 19 inches / 48 cm in length and the pendant measures 1.25 inches / 3 cm across.
