IC#37- Tiny Nesting Doll Necklace

Our Iron Craft Challenge this week was to create something tiny. This means the method itself could involve shrinking or we could just make something smaller than normal.  I considered shrinky-dink, my go to material, but decided to try something else.

I had some nesting dolls left over from when I made my nesting doll pincushion, so I decided to try and make a necklace.  I had already used the largest from the set, so this time I used the smallest!

All I did was paint the design on it (it originally had forest animals) and then screw in the eye screw.  Add a chain and voila!  It was hard painting the face this small, so she's not as cute as the large one I painted.  Still, I think she has a charm of her own.
