ohhhh, I've found myself a cheerleader! That's what I think of when I see her HIGH pony tail tied up with a pretty ribbon. The ornament is about the size of a business card and could easily be attached to a ball chain to be used as a ceiling fan pull as well. You can choose everything from the background color to hair, skin and eye color as well as the scarf she sports to ward off a chill. Ornament is then edged with a gold or silver leaf pen which gives the illusion of a frame. I can letter (New Yorker font is neat and stylish) the recipient's name on the front depending on length of name and width of letters in the name. This sample has 6 letters and was made in memoriam for a cheerleader who passed away in a rafting accident in September, 2015.
Eye color choices (Folk Art Metallics)
Inca (Glorious) Gold
Robin's Egg Blue
With over 100 colors of Deco Americana acrylic paint, just let me know what hair color, skin tone you'd like.
Ornament is then sealed with triple thick glaze which adds almost a glass like appearance to the surface.

I offer quality handmade mementos for all of life's milestones. Most of my items are designed to be customized. The names pictured on the listings are custom pieces I have created, or I have created them for display in my own home. Please convo me with what you would like your piece to say or reflect and I will let you know if it's doable (by changing the size of lettering in conjunction with size of image for example). I want you to be happy.
MATERIALS USED - I prefer to paint on wood, but I can paint on whatever will hold still! I primarily use Deco Art Americana paints, so any color from Deco Art's palette (or Folk Art etc equivalent), I probably have. For glass and tile, I use enamel paint which has been baked. It is top rack dishwasher safe but is recommended to be washed by hand.
