fabric covered pegs and making old things new

A friend asked me to revamp her necklace so I found another use for Yuzen paper. I covered the cube in this green and gold patterned paper then finished it with acrylic resin for a glassy dimensional finish. Then I covered 4 of the beads with tiny pieces of the same paper for a decoupage effect then lacquered them. It now looks a lot different to when I first saw it!

These pegs are covered in Japanese fabric and I am loving making them. Pictured is one of my cards which is on my other etsy shop http://www.artbycaro.etsy.com/ and the candle is an amazing scented candle 'fresh coffee' by Heaven Scent Candles (soon to be on this blogsite!).
