Book Charm



I found this at Salvation Army and since it had been there so long it only cost a couple of dollars. The tag says 'Hand Painted Mother of Pearl'. This is where I got the idea to paint my lockets for the Charm Swap.

I'm planning on removing it from the Mother pin and fill it with some pics and attach it to who knows what.

This is so cool! And I LOVED your charm!

A couple of weeks ago I took a class in painting on mother-of-pearl. We started with large cabochons and used acrylic paints and then sealed with gel medium. I'm not much of a painter, so I used pressed flowers from my garden.

Thanks for sharing.
