Original Art Mosaic Pendants
by Lynn Edwards.
(Dallas, Georgia USA)
As a collage/mixed media artist, I hand paint most of my own art papers. So I end up with boxes of leftover paper scraps.
This past spring I began using some of these scraps to make pendants. The process is extremely exacting and tedious; it can take me as long as a day or more just to measure and cut the scraps into tiny pieces, “audition” various arrangements, then tweeze the individual papers into position on a piece of painted wood.
Once the papers are adhered in place, I apply multiple coats of sealer followed by varnish. After a bail is affixed, I suspend the pendant on a satin cord. Then it’s ready to be offered through my Etsy shop or the gallery that carries my work.
I love making these tiny original art pieces. They’re just as fun for me to create as full size art!
