I made this necklace using a vintage image, glass, foil tape, soldering iron, flux, chain, and a broken earring.

I placed this image from the same paper on other side.

Shabby Chic Mixed Media Canvas/ Solder Necklace

 I created this Mixed media on canvas using fabric, flowers, lace, trim, a porcelain doll, pearl beads, bling, Prima paper (Sparkling Spring Collection 2011), stick pins, molding paste, and paint. This is a moment from my daughter’s child hood that she will remember for a lifetime. She truly enjoyed her doll Jasmine it was her most prized possession.  I had thrown a Birthday Party for the doll the day I took her picture, it was a small get together with friends, cake and ice cream. In the eyes of my daughter her doll was part of the family a human like us and I was a grandmother for a very long time... I loved that my daughter truly enjoyed her childhood and had quite an extended one; she played with dolls till she was about 12 to 13 years old. I've had a passion for porcelain dolls for very long time. I hope through my art my daughter can visualize her childhood again, and in my heart she will always be my little porcelain doll that grew up and became real.

I went further with my art took a picture of my canvas and created this necklace. I used chain, beads, charms, fabric, lace, glass, foil tape, solder gun, and went to work. I love the way it turned out. Now I can always keep my porcelain doll close to my heart.
