Introduction: Necklace "paintings"

About: I am an arts and crafts teacher in a secondary school in the Netherlands. (www.taborcollege.nl). I love making things. Especially out of nothing, worthless materials, garbage and cheap stuff. Besides that I...

For my wives birthday I made a necklace hanger “painting” and later I made one for my own.  As a art teacher I thought the paintings of Modigliani where a good choice. I've always loved his works and the long necks he paints are a good symbol for the use as a necklace wall ornament. (could have chosen something from a  Manierists like El Greco  but I more liked these, being portraits).
I printed the pictures to the size of the bought ornamented frames, from which I removed the glass and, with use of Posterizer and glued them with a spray glue on the panel. I used varnish on the pictures and then I attached the metal hooks  I had lying around for my wives and the wooden knobs for mine. I tried to compose a bit of balance in the placement of them.
Apart for necklaces we use them for all sorts of hangers, bracelets and watches.

    I'd set the second pic as the main image, I thinks it's much clearer.
