This truly one-of-a-kind pendant was made using fine brushes and a magnifier. The image is inspired by a detail from a Dutch flower painting by Jan Van Huysum, c. 1720 - 1722. Painted in acrylics on copper. The finest details were rendered due to the smooth, prepared copper surface. The pendant measures 1 3/8” x 1 3/8”. The 18” chain is oxidized silver, with a lovely curved bar and link pattern. The piece is sealed with varnish and a protective wax coating. As with all jewelry, store it carefully, in the provided pouch. Avoid exposing the painting to hair products or perfumes (apply before putting on jewelry). The painting, assembly and design are all done by me alone. I get some help with the panel cutting, but my studio is a solo operation!
