I 've made this necklace when I was experimenting with plastic. It's composed of plastic bags, newspaper, and I 've embroidered tinsels, beads and the words "Recycle plastic" on one side and my signature on the other.
I had to make a display frame for an exibition... I took and old frame and change the color. Had to make it more nutreal than its previous colour. So I painted with a gold spray paint.
...but it needed some enlightening so once was dried I used an aclylic gold paint and gold markers on some spots...
For the backround I just took the packaging from another item (I think it was also a frame package) and added some newspapers with glue, till it got the desired thickness. On the top I used a plain white printer paper.
