Sunday School Flashback

Remembering childhood days, it came back to me when I found this piece of spiritual art that reminds me of the images in church classes on Sunday mornings.

The faded image, with sweet colors and a special kind of vintage look.

I made this focal bead with the idea in mind that it would make a lovely bracelet, but it also could be used for a choker. Or as something totally unrelated to jewelry, like the jewel on the cover of a hand bound book or family photo album.

The resin covering the vintage image took on a sparkling effect as it cured. I don't always know when it will do it, but it seems just right for this particular image.

It's subtle and sweet, a trip back to old times and days gone by.
