Ancient Native American Pottery Shards

My friend Maja gifted me with a few pieces from her collection of Native American pottery shards she found while hiking in New Mexico. These shards are probably around 300 years old,  now are sitting on my art desk, inspiring me!
These three spoke to me and I decided to make a push mold. I love the fragmented edges and these are just the right size to create small pendants or charms.
 Here are my first few shards, impressed with a 'tree-of-life' stamp, then painted with Violet Oxide, and several layers of Golden paints. Finished with highlights of shimmery gold.

 So, I got crazy with my new 'tree of life' stamps and impressed a few more pendant/charms.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be posting more pics of the newest Spirit Dolls and the process of how they come about!
