Lost ART

Well it has been a busy week, I just want to thank everyone who commented on my glass house book. I was overwhelmed with your wonderful comments so THANK YOU guys.

This necklace was a challenge for me I wanted to do cold connections on it and after alot of work holding my tongue the right way here it is.

It is an old optical lense. I chopped the top off with my trusted dremel, then sanded it to remove the bright red paint. Then using Tim Holtz alcohol inks, I using a metal punch to add the words "Lost Art". I followed Richard Salley's free workshop link to make a cold connection necklaces and here it is.
