These Hand-Painted Necklaces Tell a Story of a Whimsical Girl

These hand-painted necklaces by ONARDs will be sure to catch eyes and strike conversation. The clever illustrations of a whimsical figure also incorporate the chains of the necklaces as a part of the design to tell a complete story. The 'Girl on a Swing' pendant show a girl swinging off the silver-plated 16" chain. Some of the other designs include a girl sitting on a bench (which is held up by the chains on each end of a bench) and a ballerina who is pulled up to posture by the necklace chains.

These original illustrations are hand painted on a silver plated plastic cut-out, which is then baked in the oven for a glazed finish. Since everything is hand drawn, each piece may differ slightly. The necklaces, along with other hand-drawn jewelry by ONARDs, are available online starting at $5. They would make for a rare gift idea that is also very affordable.
