This stunning silver and black enamel teardrop pendant is a stylish and sophisticated addition to any outfit. Bringing an elegant and defined complement to your collarbone, this look is perfectly completed by the stunning shimmer of sterling silver running through the center. Framed by the deep black enamel, the diamond-like silver sparkle creates a piece you will want to wear again and again.
The sparkle has been created using an ancient medieval finger weaving technique. Thin wire is handwoven before being embedded behind the glass to create a charming pendant that catches the sun from all different angles. This gives the effect of glitter, creating a glamourous design that goes with every outfit in your wardrobe!
• Size: Each pendant is 1 and 3/4 inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide.
• Weight: This pendant is also comfortable for all day wear, weighing in at .22 of an ounce each - just a little more than the weight of a quarter (.20 oz)
I have pioneered a new technique which creates the woven metal under glass effect. Using a medieval finger weaving technique, I weave strips from thin metal wire. I then take that woven metal fabric and embed it behind glass. The different shapes of glass either magnify or distort the underlying weave creating many interesting visual effects. In order to take these visual effects even further, I then fuse layers of glass in my kiln and put the woven metal fabric behind that.
But my favorite part is how the bends and the twists of the woven metal fabric interact with the light that is focused by the glass. The intense sparkly nature of these pieces rivals the sparkle in a well cut diamond!
Here is a brief video of me weaving the woven metal fabric:
