Hand Painted Silver "Dog Tag" Bicycle Necklace - One Of A Kind

This one-of-a-kind, hand painted mixed media bicycle pendant necklace features fun silver-tone charms on an embossed background.
These pieces may look like old, weathered metal with a fine, colorful patina…but it’s not metal. It’s PAPER. Yes, you read correctly…PAPER! I use a unique, multi-step process which yields one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces that look more like metal than paper.
You may be asking, “But how durable is it? Will I get more than just a handful of wears?” YES! I coat each piece with a protective glaze that makes it incredibly resilient. No, you can’t swim, shower, or take a hot yoga class in it, but a little moisture from getting caught in light rain or a little bit of sweat won’t hurt it.
Each piece starts as a small piece of cardstock paper. I emboss each sheet and then paint them using a highly-blendable metallic paint. I cut out the small shapes I want to use for my jewelry and then I carefully adhere each piece onto 2mm high-density craft foam for stability. The final step is coating each piece with a protective glaze before I begin to assemble it into its final jewelry form.
Every purchase is ready for giving in a handmade gift envelope - one and done! The band on the envelope slides off so you can open it up and see what you bought before gifting.
