Painting and Decorating - Paintbrush Pendant

At first glance you may think this is the world’s largest pendant containing a full size paintbrush. It is however probably the smallest paint brush in the world encapsulated within a resin pendant.

I was given a pleasant challenge last week by a customer who wanted a painting and decorating theme for a pendant to give to his wife. I am not entirely sure the reasons why but he ideally wanted a miniature paintbrush setting within a teardrop shaped pendant.

After much searching on the internet, a lovely Etsy store called ‘Middlemums miniatures’ came to my rescue. Carole of Middlemums miniatures produces fantastic handmade dolls house miniatures including a range of miniature painting and decorating items!

Because the paintbrush came with a separate paint can I also included an additional pendant as a gift to my customer. I added a sterling silver bail to the paint can to produce this pendant.

I am just loving encapsulating dolls house miniatures within my pendants and spending many hours searching through all the lovely items Middlemums miniatures and other similar sites have to offer.

  1. Both items are brilliant! I have to agree with you- there's something really fantastic about a miniature suspended in resin- just has a delightful quality!

    1. Thanks Lynda! You have just given me the inspiration for a new pendant for artists. A miniature paint brush and paint palette that actually works; so they can paint ACEOs whenever they are in the mood!
