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.
The bail at the top is large enough so that you can put this on any daintier chain. The chain is included, and you get to choose an 18 or 20 inch length.
The pendant measures (from the top of the bail) 2 1/8 inches long and 1 3/8 inches wide.
Materials (all alloys are nickel free!):
Silver: Argentium Sterling Silver (the new tarnish resistant silver) (Chain is traditional Sterling Silver)
Gold Mix (Rose/Yellow): Rose and Yellow 14/20 Gold Fill (Chain is 14/20 yellow gold fill)
Pendant comes packaged in a gift box.
