Wearable Art: Stamped Tchotchke Pin

Artsy To The Bone Tchotchke Pin by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a fun piece of wearable art. I've been working on adding patches and studs to my battle jacket. I'm really loving this form of expression with colorful patches and pins from my favorite bands and artists. I wanted to add some handmade flair to the jacket, for a bit more originality, so I created this one-of-a-kind tchotchke pin.

I pulled the Meurtos Clear Stamp Set from my Paper Wings stash. I think rock-and-roll and skulls go pretty well together! I stamped one of the skeletons and the words 'artsy to the bone' onto a piece of white cardstock using black archival ink.

Next, I cut the stamped images from the paper to fit into round pendant trays. I used a piece of floral print patterned paper as the base for the stamped text.

I attached the stamped papers to the pendant trays with Diamond Glaze. (Any liquid glaze will work for this step!) Once dry, I applied a small amount of glaze over the image in each pendant and pressed a glass cabochon over the top to seal and magnify the designs.

I added both pendants and some more charms to a 5-loop pin. I'm seriously ready to rock!

This pin is great for wearing and also giving! There is an amazing selection of stamps in the Paper Wings Productions Store that are small enough to fit onto jewelry bases and pins. If you used PWP products to create a piece of wearable art, or any art, we'd love to see it!
