Mom decided to clean out her jewelry box and I was the lucky recipient of some of her vintage jewelry! Thanks MOM! I used three pieces…two necklaces and a really cool vintage Trifari Pansy brooch. I love making these necklace mixed media pieces…they make unusual one of a kind decor.
This piece was easy to attach the necklace pieces to the canvas.
Step One: Us thin wire (24 gauge) and thread it into the necklace chain pieces.
Step Two: Twist the wire so the pieces are trapped.
Step Three: poke a small hole in the canvas and use hot glue and a piece of paper to hold the necklace chain in place.
Step Four: Repeat on the other side of the neck.
After the necklace was attached, it was fun to decorate the rest of the piece to give the illusion of a pretty top.
Last ArtWalk at Sunrose Gallery here in Seaside a gal purchased three of the “necklace assemblages” I had made! YAY!
