A couple of days ago I had an idea for making some “pendants” so I spent most of my time in the studio on Tuesday actually making them.  They turned out exactly as I’d expected and I am very pleased with the outcome.   

Here is the necklace in it’s entirety:


The technique is molton silver flattened with hammer, then domed and polished.  The beauty of it is that if you don’t like the shape you get you can always melt it and try again.

In this necklace, I used rhodolite garnet and natural citrine beads.

    The pendant looks like silver egg shells. I really like it a lot. It’s very different from anything you’ve done so far (that I’ve seen). A little more modern looking.

    My jewelry friend Susan said they looked like oyster shells. It does put me in the mind of seashells, but very imperfect ones (which are the only kind you find on Santa Monica beaches).
