Another original cameo painting :o) I painted Cara on a tiny canvas ( 1 1/4" or 32mm) and then inserted her into the pocket watch pendant (the pendant is 1 3/4" or 44 mm). The last photo shows the back of the pocket watch pendant. The painting is one of a kind and signed and sealed. The antiqued brass chain is 20" long with a lobster clasp. The necklace is a one of a kind and there won't be another one like it! Perfect way to show off your art!

Meet Gail. She is really sick of her sister always snickering and poking fun at her, so today while they were making paper dolls, when her sister laughed at her dolls, the monster within took over. Next thing Gail knew the scissors in her hand where in her sisters back. That made her stop laughing.

Her legs and arms are movable. She has vintage watch parts on her face. Her left eye is a piece of glass I hand painted. In her left hand is a pair of silver scissors. I painted her in layers with acrylic paints, she is sealed with a matte finish. Her dress is black velvet with vintage lace trim, hand sewn (not removable).

I've decided to paint some of the steampunk souls and I thought a cameo would be the perfect beginning! I painted little Suzi on a tiny canvas and then inserted her into the pendant. The painting is one of a kind and signed and sealed. I also embellished it with tiny vintage watch parts. I used vintage blue rosary beads for one side of the necklace and part of the other side. The chain is 22" long with a lobster clasp. A vintage watch part also hangs as a charm, along with two metal black roses. At the bottom of the pendant is a brass key and two of the vintage blue rosary beads.
Available in my etsy shop! Happy Monday everyone! xo Michele

I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
