I have been really into paper mache lately, but I botched up one thing I was working on and had to scrap it. I got the idea to cut some small pieces out of the scraps and use them as charms in a necklace, because they were a nice thickness and could have holes punched etc. I painted them and covered in polyurethane, and covered a wooden disk with letters for the pendant. It is a little busy, I think, but hopefully still interesting.

That's very nice!...stylish.  Great idea.

Is the pendant a little less smooth than the others, or is that an illusion from the photo?

You are right, for the pendant I decoupaged letters onto a wooden disk, I sanded it a little but didn't want to sand off the letters..in retrospect I might have gone a different way with that.

Thank you for your comment!

I think this is a great show of multiple talents in one piece. It is very innovative and I love the red dangles at the end of the carm it pulls it all together

I love the "black, white, and red all over" theme of this necklace.  And busy can be good!  I love statement jewelery, especially when paired with a simple ensemble. I'd totally wear this with a traditional little black dress.  Wink  Are you thinking of making any matching pieces for the set like a bracelet or earrings?
