Impasto Reversible Polymer Necklace

This pendant was created by taking a cut shaped slab of solid mint green polymer and dying it with silk fabric. After the dying process, I then covered the one side entirely with navy colored polymer and scratched into the surface to reveal the mint green polymer below and creating the sunburst texture on one side. On the reverse side, the silk dyed pattern was much more interesting so I simply accented that with some appliqued navy circle patterning. After curing again, the textural elements were highlighted with some gold acrylic. I love unusual jewelry design with simplistic elements to keep the piece interesting yet not overwhelming; and it was with that view that I created the asymmetrical wandering seed bead hanging design. More views of the texture detail and reverse side can be found in my flickr photostream at:
