Wooden Matchsticks Upcycled
Here's a new addition to my range of wooden matchstick brooches - a wooden matchstick pendant. I've just listed these two babies in the Etsy shop. One is red and turquoise, the other is green and turquoise. They are created from coloured matchsticks - some I purchase pre-coloured, others I colour myself using fabric dyes. The matches have been glued to a recycled piece of MDF painted black, and then loads of layers of varnish have been sprayed on to seal.
Finally the pendants have been suspended from lovely sterling silver chains. RRP $64 AU. Hope you like them?
