My new project is part of a series I have been creating over the last four years.
These pendants were created with the beautiful packaging I save from a box of tea I purchase in Paris every April.
This year I fell in love with the packaging for Mariage Freres's "I have a dream" black tea.
You can see how I punched my circles right from the cardboard box. The colours of the rainbow with gold foiled accents.
I did not embellish the cardboard at all. It was beautiful as is and I simply sealed the paper before pouring Jewelry Resin over the circles glued into my bezels. Note that last week I reminded you that resin does not like the cold, so my pieces cured with my desk lamp on.
I noticed the attachments on the bezel pendants were curved, so in order to pour resin into a flat surface I placed them over this ice cube tray. This way I did not have a huge over pour situation.
The "I have a Dream Rainbow Bezels" were accented with felt.
I am so happy with the final necklace. It joins my Mariage Frere collection of "packaging to wearable art" series.
