Painted Wooden Discs for Necklaces

Going from Painted Rocks to Painted Necklaces, during November and December, I painted over 50 wooden discs for necklaces.  These necklaces were fun to paint, and I kept making more.  Then I realized I had to do something with them, so I opened a store on Etsy, listing 20 necklaces, mostly in different motifs.  Not one request came from a prospective Etsy buyer.  Not one sold.  Consequently, friends and acquaintances and perhaps a few people not too enamored with me were recipients of a necklace or two.


Two inch wooden discs were either stained a honey gold or painted a dark blue or black background color. Then acrylics were applied to the backof the disc.

Some of my favorite discs were of When Pigs Fly, but I failed to get a picture of them before they were out the door.

All the materials for making these necklaces are stored in a box out in the garage.  I feel compelled to use up the discs, satin and leather cords, paints, and jewelry making objects. Want one?
