In this series, I'm using black enamel to create frames that really "pop" the woven metal under the glass. In this shape, the high dome of the ovals that I've fused on top creates such high levels of distortion, that it almost looks like a hologram is inside!
To create the focal section of this pendant, I weave sheets of fabric from rose & yellow 14/20 gold fill wire or silver wire using a medieval fingerweaving technique. Then I cut this fabric into smaller pieces to embed behind the glass. The different shapes of glass both magnify the weave, giving it more definition, as well as collect the light, making the entire piece glisten.
