This unique, hand painted, necklace is made from a lightweight resin, the colours I’ve used are:
Turquoise, Blue, Midnight Blue and Green. All my pieces of jewellery are one-of-a-kind, due to the nature of the paint, no two designs will be the same.
My Jewellery has a colourful abstract effect that is obtained by mixing the paint colours together. The colour combination and the amount of paint I use depicts the final result of each piece. Once the paint is dry it has a stunning opalescent and pearlescent honeycomb effect.
The paint and resin I use are non-toxic jewellery grade
-The first step is to make a resin bezel, which I colour with Mica powder and glitter (gotta love a bit of glitter).
-I then pour the resin into a silicone mould and that takes 24 hours to cure.
-The next step is my favourite part of the process, this is where I do the hand-painting, I use an oil-based paint that takes between 3-5 days to dry.
-The next part of the process, which is the most trickiest part, is called doming. That’s where I pour clear resin over the paint to seal it, which gives it a glassy effect. This final layer takes around 24 hours to cure.
-Once the resin layer has cured, I sand and polish the piece.
The length of the pendant length is 20 inches including the silver plated snake chain. There is an additional 2 inch extension chain.
Your necklace will arrive in an organza bag within an eco friendly pillow box, and comes with its own little cleaning cloth to keep your chain nice and shiny.
