Tando Week: pendant + dress form

Gio is with us today with a couple of samples she made for us using the Tando mini house and fences set to create a beautiful jewellery piece (I see that when I asked to think out of the box... they do take me seriously LOL). She also altered a dress form using the Tando cogs as embellishments. 
Aren't they both gorgeous?

I painted the little chipboard from Tando with Fresco paint: London Bus.
Once dry I covered it with the transparent Viva Croco paste. When still wet I poured some beads, microbeads, pieces of lace, jump rings, little fragments of plastic.
I let it dry and I added the image, a piece of red fiber and I linked the pendant with an old chain using some jump rings.

For her second project, Gio used the clock hands and cog pendants.
Who would have thought that those would end up on a dress form?

I covered the dorso with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: Little black dress
Once dry I stamped it using a swirl stamp from PaperArtsy HP1007 and StazOn Metallic Silver.

I painted the mini cogs and the clock hands from Tando with Fresco Finish paint Pewter.
I cut  the bodice from silver tape and I attached to the torso, along with the cogs and the clock hand as a necklace.
