Chinese Lucky Lobster Pendant

DOMINO PENDANTS

I am inspired by the possibilities of small canvases so when
I saw the range of art being produced on dominoes, I immediately bought a set and did the prep work getting them ready to work with. That was about 15 years ago, and while I loved the art I was able to create, I lacked the wherewithal to do more with them than wish I could figure out some way of using them. Time has passed, and I’ve now gotten some ideas from others about how to use the dominoes in jewelry.

Dripping alcohol ink onto a domino and then hitting it with a blast of air creates wild patterns.
When I first looked at this first one horizontally, I saw a prehistoric cave drawing. When I turned it to the vertical view, it became a lobster…and suddenly had a Chinese vibe. Gold and red–aren’t those the lucky colors? The background is a sheen of gold, I picked up in the thin leather cord from which it hangs. The beads are gold metal, art glass, and red faux pearls.

I’m paying the postage on this one, within the United States. Elsewhere, let’s talk.

$20….and you’ll have it well in time for Christmas. Comment if you’re interested….
