Cherry Blossoms Polymer Clay Photojewelry

It’s a necklace. It’s a pin. It’s BOTH!!! The photos are based on the ones that I actually took myself using my digital camera. I reduced the photo size in Photoshop (along with any other kind of retouching that a photo may need), printed it out, created a frame out of polymer clay, stuck the photo inside the clay frame, placed necklace loops on top of the frame, baked the item for 15 minutes, then glude a pin backing on the back. Regardless of whether you decide to wear it as a necklace or as a pin, it’s the ultimate in wearable art! I created them in both large (about 2 inches x 2 inches or 5 cm x 5 cm) and small versions (about 1 inch x 1 inch or 3 cm x 3 cm).

As for the photo inside the photojewelry, this one was taken at the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC and it includes the Washington Monument and the cherry blossom trees at the peak of their blooming season. (The trees usually bloom for around 10 days sometime between late March and early April.)
