Just little bits of Art....

....and when I say "little", I mean tiny...haha!
I've been trying something new and working really, really small.

Here's an example:

 
That's a dime next to that pendant.  The painted rectangle is just 1 cm x 1.5 cm.  ( Or roughly 3/8 x 5/8 inches.
Can you see the lovely iridescent medium shimmering on the feather?
 
Since these tiny art pieces are original, one-of-a kind creations, I wanted to make them into special jewelry.  I am using bits of broken, vintage necklaces and adding new and pre-owned components to make wonderful pieces that are unlike anything I've made before.
 
 
They come with coordinating earrings, as well....
 
 
I've painted 7 in all. Here's the 2nd one:
 
 
This is just 1.5 cm in diameter.  Acrylic paint with a Diamond Glaze coat on top.
 
 
The pearls and sweet carved rose beads are vintage.
 
 
I'm really taking my time and going through my stash thoroughly for each little mini painting. I took a quick snapshot of a small portion of my desk.  It looks like a bead store burped up on my table :)
 
 
I'll share the others with you as soon as they are done.
I hope they become beloved treasures for art and jewelry lovers alike :)
 
I'll be spending tomorrow re-vamping my store for the winter Holidays.  I'm offering $10 DOLLARS OFF all orders over $50 with code OVERFIFTYISNIFTY. This coupon code is valid until December 15, 2013.
 
Make your Christmas List and pop on over....perhaps there's a few treasures there to help :)
Thank you so much for coming here time and time again to check in with me.
As blogging becomes less and less popular, I understand how amazing it is that you come by for a visit...and I appreciate it!
 
Back to the beads and pliers....
 
Many hugs,
Cam

Cam, these are so beautiful and creative! You know, I never really paid attention to jewelry much until I started painting...well, jewelry and even things like the way a clothing store is set up and decorated. Art is truly everywhere, isn't it? I LOVE what you made. Can't wait to see the others.
