New Abstract Jewelry

Over Thanksgiving break, I messed around with some tar paper. You know, that stuff you put on your roof (on top of wood, underneath shingles)...the black stuff.

Apparently you can paint on it. So, I slung around some paint, used a straw to blow around some ink, added some oil pastel shapes and lines, and finished it off with some copper leafing and metallic paints.

After it all dried, I cut it into various shapes. Then, I poked a hole in the top and covered them with two-part epoxy. When they all dried, I turned them into earrings and necklaces.

Here is an example of one of the necklaces! Shiny and colorful. I like it!
