I purchased this pipe at a flea market in France. I was told it was carved from Ivory, but after a bit of research, I believe it is a mershon pipe. Either way, I thought it was cool and wanted to make a piece of jewelry out of it. As I have said before, One of the things I love about Ice Resin, is it allows you reproduce special pieces. I paid a lot for this piece and want to use it is several different ways.
I used acrylic paint to alter the cast piece. I painted a thin coat of resin over the piece to give it a shine and brighten the color. I used some chain, ribbon and gemstones to finish it off.
