My girlfriend, Jane Houk, is a watercolor artist. Her latest painting, Chinese Lion for Luck and Fortune, was purchased by the State Foundation for Culture and the Arts. I was so impressed by her work that I decided to capture it in a piece of wearable art for her. While in Japan I came across a new resin product which is set by UV light. I knew that it would be the perfect way to encase a digitally reduced copy of Jane's painting. The pendant base is from Nunn Designs and I found a cloisonne bead that matched perfectly with the kimono fabric cord (a wonderful purchase from Japan). I made two necklaces (not identical), one for her and one for me. I think we are both pleased with our combined artistic efforts. Success = 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.
