Help Me Create My Wearable Art

Why should art only be displayed on walls and shelves? My wearable art collection features pendant necklaces, rings, brooches, and bobby pins; art you can wear! I want your help in deciding what turn three of my resin-finished miniature paintings into. Each tiny acrylic painting is one-of-a-kind and signed by me on the back. Each one is created with high quality acrylic paints on a wooden tile. The paintings are then sealed on every surface, and then receive a high-gloss resin finish which gives it a very shiny and polished look. The finished effect is similar to that of a heavy glass piece, but it is actually very lightweight.

Here are the three original paintings:


1) Daisy Twins


2) Lenny The Leprechaun


3) Harvey On The Fence Posts

I want to know what you think. What should these miniature paintings become? Pendants? Brooches? Please leave a comment telling me what you would like to see me make. I'm listening. :)

Harvey is too cute! I think I'd use him as a key chain. In smaller sizes, maybe children's pendant. Or a bracelet of some kind? Hmmm. Not sure. :) Fun idea though! Great art.

Yes Ripper Arts is correct! Harvey is too cute! Love your wearable art!

I think that Lenny The Leprechaun should be made into a brooch. That the Daisy Twins should be a pendant, and I love Ripper Arts idea about the keychain for Harvey! They are all adorable!

I like the rectangle shape best and would vote pendant. I wonder if you could make a bracelet out of one? Then the wearer could see it all day.

I really like the top one, though they are all really nice. I don't wear a lot of jewelry (it has to be at least 10K or I turn green), but I'm developing a "thing" for pendants - so I think that would be the way to go. Though fridge magnets work for me too!

I think either a pendant or a brooch will work! They are all cute; I especially like the first and third! Now, if you could make these in smaller size, you could turn them into earrings!

I think they'd look great as a watch-style bracelet.

I think brooches or pendants for all. They'd also make cute keychains or magnets. Have fun!
