Pinky is a King Charles Spaniel hand-illustrated pendant.
Pinky the Pomeranian has that cute fluff ball cut that makes her look like a powder puff. Vivacious, full of mischief and love, Poms are tiny balls of personality.
In the case of this lovely dog, the expression is pure joy! Pinky is a hand-illustrated portrait using colored pencil on pure copper, mounted on recycled / up-cycled circuit board.
I use a special, multi-step process to prep the copper surface to accept the colored pencil illustration. I hand-draw and color the decorative elements—in this case, pretty black / white / tan pup—with rich layers of artist-grade pencils. I then seal the image with several coats of a satin acrylic finish.
The focal image is then mounted using rivets to an up-cycled circuit board. The use of the recycled circuit board material has been an ongoing theme for me—I am from Silicon Valley, and I meld my art with my background / roots in the hi-tech marketplace.
The focal image is approximately 1-¼” square, and the final piece is approximately 1-½” square. The pendant is on a 18″ coated steel wire choker cable with a magnetic clasp. It’s easy to put on and wear.
Note that while this has been sealed, you need to use care to ensure that the image doesn’t get scratched.
