Altered Art Domino Necklace


About this design:

My new-found passion is altered art and mixed media jewelry. This item is a domino with a vintage Japanese color flower graphic. I used alcohol inks to color the domino and UV resin to coat and seal. For me everything is about color. Everywhere I go these types of necklaces seem to be real eyecatchers. I actually have people stopping me in the grocery store to get a close look. I am loving it.

Components:

domino, color graphic, UV resin, alcohol inks, Diamond Glaze, faceted carnelian and faceted turquoise beads, Bali silver spacers, glue on bails, silver plated bangle with green stone.

    what does the reverse side look like?

    to Eeka Mouse – The sides and the back are alcohol inked also. The dots of the domino if coordinating with the color of the domino are left alone and if need be I match the color of the metal (bail, dangle, etc.) with a silver, gold, copper leafing pen or a paint pen color that matches. I will take a pic for you and put it on tonight.

    For Eeka Mouse -the back and sides of this one are a pale green with silver mixative inks. I did the dots on the back in silver leaf as a match to the bail and dangle bail.

    For some reason the picture still says attaching even though it is small pixel. I will keep trying and maybe it will finally attach. Thanks

    To Eeka Mouse – this is the picture of the back. The alcohol ink is a pale green with silver mixative, so I did the dots with a silver leafing pen.
