Starry Night Pendant and Tree of Life are getting Attention on Etsy

There have been quite a few views 
of two of my pieces of jewelry on Etsy lately.


The Starry Night Pendant - $25.00

This is an original fused glass cab with floating dichroic sparkles.   I melt the cut layers of glass in my kiln a 1450 degrees. 
 
Then I edit and print the Starry Night picture.  The photo is placed behind the fused glass and attached with a very strong and waterproof adhesive.  A waterproof backing is attached and then a silver plated bail is attached.  

Finally, the entire pendant is strung on a 3mm black leather adjustable pendant cord.  This cord adjusts from 17-3/4" to 19-1/2".  The cord can be shortened by placing a knot in the leather cord near the clasp.


Tree of Life Pendant in Fine Silver - $65.00

This is a beautiful "Tree of Life" pendant made of fine silver.  

The process begins with Precious Metal Clay (Powdered silver in clay form).  The clay is rolled out.  I press a stamp into the clay, which I made by carving in Sculpey Clay.  Then the oval shape is cut and the bail is attached. The pendant is fired at 1450 degrees and then polished to a beautiful shine.  

This pendant measures 1 inch by 1.5 inches.  This pendant is also strung on a 3mm black leather adjustable pendant cord.  But it looks beautiful when worn with an Omega Chain as shown in the picture.
