truebluemeandyou: Please don’t steal my posts. I went to the Tumblr DIY and CRAFTS featured tags and found my exact post - exact words and all - by f-l-e-u-r-d-e-l-y-s (and her original source is her own blog). If you’re going to post this fine. Just don’t steal my words. I actually read Ashley Gilreath’s entire bio and exhibition notes and that’s how I came up with my post.
truebluemeandyou: “I Am Who They Were” Necklace by Artist Ashley Gilreath 2011. Reblogging because I am going to make this on a much smaller scale by using dollhouse frames/bezels and taken apart lockets (I could also make the frames by making a polymer clay mold). I would then print out photos on transparency paper (which I use all the time in my collages). *Another cheap gift idea I’ve done - print out a high contrast black and white photo on transparency paper and use neon green, white, or whatever color you want to back it with.
“I Am Who They Were” Necklace by Artist Ashley Gilreath 2011. Read the history behind this amazing piece and see more photos at Ashley Gilreath here. Ms. Gilreath created this necklace by casting dollhouse frames in silver and bronze and printing family portraits directly onto microscope glass.
