Frida number 1

Sold. Thank you Ron

Right off the bat, I want to thank Francie of Art in the Hermitage, for suggesting that I create a Frida Goddess necklace. I thought about it and decided that since I’ve painted her so many times and even sculpted her, I could certainly turn her image into a necklace.
Frida necklaces number 1 and 2

Frida Shown On My Kitchen Wall

For those or you who don’t know who Frida is, you can visit my blog post called,Frida Kahlo. There I tell a bit about the life of this spicy Mexican icon. I tried to make the necklaces and pin as colorful as possible to reflect that life.

Since I think these are going to be pretty popular, I have made 2 necklaces and 1 pin for sale. I used a combination of antique flowers and junk jewelry for the base and old necklaces from India.
Frida number 1

I’ve combined old jewelry and new. Notice the antique flowers and the old flower button. She is 3"wx5”h with a 12" drop on the necklace. Price: $85.00

I also combined old and new jewelry mixed in with some paper jewelry for my Frida pin. The back is mounted on antique brass. She is 2"w x3"h and is priced at $28.00

Sold. Thank you Beth!

Pictures of necklaces displayed on my kitchen wall are shown with flowers from Joe Light, otherwise known as Mr. Flower Power. Joe has continuous displays of gorgeous flowers and ornamentals all year long. His magnolia leaf wreaths are the hit of the Farmer’s Market in Roanoke, Virginia in December.
