I've been working with wood and acrylic for a while, making silhouette jewelry designs. I recently decided to create something on a bigger scale. This is cut from birch wood and measures 24 inches tall.

It is a larger version of my necklace:

I would love feedback on this piece! I usually make tiny things.  Smiley Have a great day!

A Lady Ought is my favourite of your designs, and I think it makes a FABULOUS piece of wall art - have you tried making wall-art size in the mirror acrylic? I think that would be amazing!

Love it so much! I've always looked at your pieces and wished I could have one. They are beautiful, and I love it as wall art too Smiley

I like it when I wake up in the mornings and my first thought is "what can I make today?"

That is beautiful!  I like the idea of using the mirror acrylic as well.

I'm waiting with baited breath for my own "Lady" to arrive from etsy, and now I want a big one for my door!! This is a great idea, it translates really well on a larger scale.

Want to contribute to an art installation? Any help would be great-join the ball game! go to 6/29/2008 of this blog for details: http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/

"Rocked" and "Wisted"... however if I was to slip a certain someone a certain address, a certain Malibukasey can remove it from her Wist list and add it to her bragging list!

Oh, like a thousand thumbs up for the change of medium/size. While I do lurve your original jewelry pieces - I would hesitate to buy one for myself as I am rather amply endowed and I really don't think I could work out a way of wearing either a brooch or necklace without drawing undue attention to that area. Not that I hate my boobs but it can cause embarassment when someone admiring jewelry suddenly realises they're staring at your chest...

...hmm, possibly TMI there! What I was trying to say is that I think this translates fantastically well into an art piece and widens your market sales wise (I'm imagining a commissioned wedding present with a matching/complimentary male silhouette, details on both being specific to the couple...)

I absolutely love this.  IT is beautiful.  Are they all different pieces or the same piece placed in different places?  I love the necklace too.
