I made a few pieces of jewelry for the latest MAF swap recently, and thought I would share them here.

First, these are a couple of glass tile pendants done with Arthur Rackham's illustrations for Undine.  They were printed on linen paper, and backed with Japanese paper, and several coats of a clear glaze.  I edged the sides with copper and used copper findings, chain, or brown ribbon to string them on.  I thought the copper would look best with the earthy colours of the images.





For the same swap, I stalked her wist and saw lots of cherry pieces, so made this bracelet and necklace.  The cherries were done with shrink plastic, sharpie, coloured pencil, acrylic varnish, and there was so much wire wrapping to make the loops for the beads I thought my hand would fall off.  They are nice heavy, jangly pieces, and very colourful.





Finally, this is a crochet tattoo type necklace, done with shrink plastic and coloured pencil too, on a ribbon necklace, as my partner crochets

Thank you.  I was never a fan of his Alice illustrations, preferring the John Tenniel illustrations more, but after I became more aware of his other works, I am more of a fan too Cheesy

It helps that Undine/Little Mermaid/Rusalka is a a fable that I am particularly fond of.

Thank you!  I am seriously contemplating taking a few more of the Rackham images and making a couple for myself too.  There is another one of his (for Undine also I think), that has the sisters of the mermaid in the waves, that I like too:

I'm a huge Rackham fan. I'm replicating several of his pieces with my own twists on them. I'm just so thrilled to see jewelry made from his work! I'd just love wearing one of those.
