“Red Alert!” features a sweet little Dachshund with a flower petal ear and a bone in its ‘tummy’. I hand-cut the form out of the circuit board and then formed the custom bezel out of copper. The ear and bone are made of my own polymer clay millefiori canes; little mini masterpieces sliced thin, cured and set in the pendant. The final composition is then encased and domed in jewelry-grade crystal resin, which brightens, encases and slightly magnifies the layers, giving the pendant depth and additional visual interest. The tipsy necklace moves with you, giving further life to this mini masterpiece!
Creating the treasures in this series has been an absolute delight. The circuit boards have been cut into different shapes and encased with a hand-formed soldered copper bezel. Each circuit board pendant is artfully collaged with graphic, cured slices of polymer clay canes. The final polymer collage is then enrobed and domed with a thick layer of crystal-clear, jewelry-grade resin. The resin permanently affixes the elements to the circuit board but also magnifies the imagery in the collage. The final result is STUNNING. The pictures really don’t do it justice!
