Product Description:

Hand painted pendant by Christina Goodman depicting the lilies in the painting Annunciation by Nicolas Bertin from the D'Arcy Collection.

About Christina Goodman's process:

To produce her miniature images, Christina uses very fine brushes, good lighting and a magnifier. She uses acrylic paint as it dries quickly and allows for her to work on a small scale. Her frame designs for the one-of-a- kind polyptychs and tabernacles are based on Renaissance styles. Christina designs and builds the frames with wood using miniature moldings and a centuries-old water gilding technique. The result, as seen here and in the D'Arcy inspired necklace, is well worth the labor-intensive process.
