Blue is a Siberian Husky puppy hand-illustrated pendant.
Siberian Husky puppies are the cutest little bundles of fur. This little puppy, “Blue,” has piercing blue eyes and grey, black and white fur. Blue is waiting for a new home!
Blue 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.
