feature of the week: gingerdead

"llustrated Jewelry by Calan Ree

Each piece is hand-formed in durable polymer clay and illustrated in traditional pen and ink by artist and comic creator Calan Ree (creator of GingerDead and Friends). No two pieces are ever exactly the same. The artwork is protected with 2 coats of varnish which adds a nice shine that enhances rather than overpowers or alters the illustration.

The illustrated polymer piece is set inside a brand new silver-toned bottle cap and a silver plated bail is attached for hanging on your favorite necklace. I include a black ball chain which looks really great with the pendant. The chain is snip-to-fit, use ordinary scissors and simply cut to the length you desire. It is 22" long and I personally think the pendant looks best on a short chain so it rests right beneath the throat, but it's up to you!

Artwork is water-resistant but not water or shark proof, so please no bathing or swimming. Avoid mud wrestling, playing in toxic waste or chainsaw juggling to keep your one-of-a-kind art illustrated jewelry in perfect condition. I wouldn't sleep wearing a bottle cap as it can flip over and press against your skin in a pinchy fashion...unless that's your thing of course.:) " ~gingerdead
