After some recent surgery I can't wear my rings at the moment (boo!) so I wanted to create something cool to display them on. Zombies are all the rage at the moment, so I knew I wanted to use them in my inspiration.

Voila, zombie arm!



Lots of paints in layers to alter this ceramic arm so it looks like the flesh is rotting and the wound has been ripped open to reveal the bones...that screams jewellery to me! Wink





Grr! Stay safe out there! Grin

Fantastic!  I definitely think I would remember where I put my rings...

I really like the finish you put on the piece...and of course, the attention to detail.  I have never seen a zombie, so I am not sure I would know what was realistic, but, I think you captured them realistically with your hand ring holder!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Thank you!

I think shiny insects crawling over a rotting body part is a fun combination. I'm lucky I only wear insect rings, or it might look weird Cheesy
