Death Garden I Miniature Painting Pendant by Alternate Empire

Death Garden I Miniature Painting Pendant by Alternate Empire


Death Garden is a recent series of miniature painted pendants depicting skulls surrounded by living plants. Nature continues to thrive long after we are gone. The painting is varnished with a UV protective and waterproof gloss.

The pendant measures 1.75 x 1 inches and includes a matching 18 inch stainless steel chain.

Alternate Empire was born out of a fine arts project of creating small one inch paintings of small animals that evolved into wearable original drawings and paintings. With design influences from the 18th through the early 20th centuries, the miniature artworks delve into wildlife and anatomical themes. They are set within a various accoutrements, such as pendants, earrings, brooches, lapel pins and more. No work is ever printed and completely one of a kind. All items are made by Jenn Cortés in her small Greenpoint workshop.

Jenn Cortés, owner and sole creator of Alternate Empire, studied Art History and Painting at CUNY Hunter College and works in historical research for fine art and design auctions.
