I’ve had some requests for Safety Pin-related jewelry, so I created a few pieces.
To represent a family unit, I wrangled four safety pins onto a fifth, separated by rainbow beads, and shaped a wire rectangle around the mobile structure. The rectangle was thenÂ embellished with a piece of hand-drawn rainbow paper that had been dipped in a beeswax and resin mixture, after which I adhered it to the wire.Â This piece measures 2Â 1/4Â inches long by 1 1/2Â inches wide and is about 1/2 inch deep. The pendant comes with a black satin cord, pictured is a 16″ cord.Â See other available lengths in the additional information tab and please specify the length you would prefer by filling out “Additional Order Notes” during checkout.

Encaustics should be cared for as you would for any fine art piece. Encaustic derives from the word â€˜burn inâ€™ and is a process of applying molten wax colors to a surface for the creation of images or decoration that began more than 2 millennia ago with Roman Egyptian wax portraits.
