I enjoy making these very much, this craft time for me splits up my studio time nicely giving me a little space between painting and drawing.
These pieces of my art print jewllery are inspired by another fabulous trend influenced by our friends in Japan, Decora and Decoden or Dekoden is for all of us who are part-crow, those of us who are attracted to anything that has gems, sparkles and glitters. The term “deco” is intuitively short for decorated and “den” is short for “denwa” meaning “phone” in Japanese.
Japanese Decoden culture has been adored by those who love it and called tacky by those who don’t. The “deco” term covers all of the types of embellishments, from flat and glittery to the most impractical faux - dessert topography, and making or finding a good one isn’t a small feat. Decoden phone cases are categorically over-the-top but I’m sure that is the point, to be decadent and whimsical. I excited after making these pendant tins, because have just acquired a few blank i-phone 5 cases and intend to try my hand at decorating these soon.
On these pendant tins I have added a glass art print cabochon with a range of resin cast objects, dolls house ceramics, gems, pearls and some handmade polymer clay miniture food items.
