Painting to Wearable Art Keepsake Necklace!

My first post for 2015 features a piece of art from an artist I admire.

Nancy Donaldson is known for her encaustic paintings.  At her show/sale in November I was the first in line to pick this painting which featured teal, a colour she had not used in the past.

With her permission, I scanned the painting to make tiny copies.

Her painting looks amazing under resin in these bezels.

Artwork encased in resin created a compact, wearable keepsake.

Reminder:  I would never do this without the express consent of the artist.
