    I got this damaged pendant, lacking the 3 drops...
    Unmarked gilt silver/vermeil
    I removed the black patch and completed the lack with air curing polymer clay.
    The drops were modeled with gold effect baking polymer clay, with an embeded long ring.
    Painted with acrylic paint I mixed to get the matching turquoise color.
    The micromosaic effect was made with black and white posca pens, colored with permanent markers.
    Protected with a thin layer of varnish.
    As the gold effect wasn't convincing, some "rub'n buff" silver then gold gave a more convenient effect!
    A 3 hours work... but I'm really pleased with the result :-D
    6.5cm or 2.5" with bale before completion.
    8cm or 3.1/8 once the dangles are installed.
    3cm or 1.1/8" wide.

      So So Amazing My Friend! When I saw your post I looked at each picture before reading your description of Kyratization. I could not tell the 3 drops were added. Then I read your post and am amazed at your finished piece. It is lovely, thank you for sharing how you restore your gems. XOXO

      Dear Phil! Thank you! My "lab" is actually my kitchen table, lol :-D
      My tools are tooth picks, and nail art/crafts things or "Mac Giver" repurposed things ;-)

      Jenni, thanks! You know I'm fond of animals in jewellery, even if not bugs ;-)
      Turquoise and aqua are my fav colours too!

      Wpj, thank you for your kind comment, and taking the time to visit!
      You are too rare on CW... I miss your deightful jewellery posts!

      Mary! XO my friend for your appreciation of my "cosmetic" kyratisation!
      I try each time to explain the "how to" and really appreciate that you examined all pics :-)

      I'm with Mary...
      I, too, thought the drops were original to the piece.
      Lady, you sure work magic on damaged jewelry and bring them back to life in the most beautiful way....
      Your dedication to restoring "works of art" is to be applauded.
      Not everyone can do what it is you do!
      ( I really need to step out of "Costume Jewelry" more often :)

      Oohh, Ms.CrystalShip... It is a great pleasure to get such supportive and enthusiastic comment :-D
      THANK YOU !!!

      Your artistic flair most reminds me of a fav old friend of mine who could take the most time forgotten piece and make something of a work of art of it. Your patina that you craft on with your markers remind me of buying in the mid eighties the markers you could also use an airbrush with, so I bought a lot of them. Your patina is always through the roof in appeal !~
    17. kyratango kyratango, 2 years ago
      Oh la la! So much compliment in your comment, Phil!
      Permanent markers in all colors are a must have :-))
      Thank you my friend, XOXO

      Thank you Marga! I wouldn't call it a restoration, only a kyratisation... Cosmetic ;-))
