Enekpe African Goddess of the family and guardian of destiny. One story relates that when she saw that her tribe was losing a battle, she offered herself as a sacrifice to save her people, and was buried alive on the battlefield; her tribe was saved.

This necklace is made using a backgammon game piece and recycled images.
About the process:
The pieces first have holes drilled into them for beading, then the surface is prepped for the medium. Some of the pieces have been painted, others stamped and painted with alcohol based permanent inks, or a found image from recycled objects is attached (i.e. calendars, books, magazines).
The last step in making the pendant; the complicated part of the process, is applying the acrylic resin. The acryllic resin is a process that took some time to learn and test but is worth it because the end result is crystal clear glass like finish and hard as a rock making these beautiful creations nearly eternal. Unlike "glazes" and polyurethane finishes that will yellow or grey, flake, peel, and deteriorate over time, acrylic epoxy resin is the only permanent, non-yellowing sealant available. After the resin has set (about 3 days) they can finally be used for the most fun part of the process- beading!
