Kokopelli Necklace from Polymer Clay

This necklace was made as a gift for an Arizona flutist who loves the Kokopelli image. The pendant was made with PREMO poly clay, cured and wet sanded on a piece of flat glass till totally flat. Then the image was rubber stamped and overpainted with  "Brilliance" brand archival pigment graphite black ink. I wanted to create an "ethnic" primitive look so the design on the cured white beads was made by using a Speedball linoleum cutter with #2 V-gouge blade (a process which ended up requiring small plastic bandages on several fingers). The designs were antiqued with a mix of black acrylic paint and a little Varathane.

This particular pendant is no longer for sale, but I do have several other forms of Kokopelli for sale at my online Etsy shop including a necklace that incorporates a small amount of real Sedona Red Rock into the design and a hanging holiday ornament. Please check out: MelodyODesignsatEtsy
