Here are some progress shots of my piece. I decided to keep in the same theme that I used for my piece last year and have the 10x10 be a sort of display for a wearable piece of jewelry. I originally painted the canvas gray, but then it seemed too boring so I drew this pattern on and started painting again. It took me like 6 hours to paint the pattern on. I am SO not a painter!
Then I made these copper hands that double as hooks to hold a necklace.
They protrude just a little bit from the canvas to add some depth.
The necklace is three strands of individually knotted freshwater pearls and garnet teardrop shaped beads, tied on red silk.
I hope someone likes it enough to buy it!
