Here's the latest piece from my Geranium series. Each of the geranium pendants I create is made from a real, unique geranium leaf that I have coated in multiple layers of fine silver paste. When the pendant is finished and all the embellishments added, the geranium leaf is incinerated in the kiln, leaving only the silver behind.
This one has a bezel made of extruded silver that I twisted into a rope and embellished with fine silver casting grain. At the center is one of my own fused dichroic glass cabochons. The geranium leaf has been fused onto a floral-textured background with a rollover bail.
I've suspended the pendant from a gorgeous thick, heavy 18-inch Italian sterling silver chain with lobster claw clasp. The chain and pendant have been hand-oxidized and then polished to bring out all the wonderful textural detail in this OOAK piece.
Happy New Year, everyone!
