I'm inspired by the visual side of biology and collect old science books for craft purposes (even though it feels a bit like sacrilege to cut pages out of a book). I wanted to use an image from an old science encyclopedia for this project. Ideally I would like to make the epoxy resin jewellery but I don't have the supplies, so I made a paper necklace instead.
I like big jewellery because it is more of a statement. I saw a picture of an octopus in the same encyclopedia I'd like to use next when I've got some resin. I've also bought cheap used jewellery in bulk from flea markets so I can use their parts in my own creations.
