The wisdom of ancient cultures. Not only did they create functional items, they also created beauty within the functional piece. A fascination with these ancient cultures along with my fascination with amulets led me to create this line of wearable art.
These ornamental vessels are my interpretation of vessels and amulets from Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. Each one has its own unique layout and design meaning no two will be alike.
This particular piece has an enameled Ancient Egyptian style raven on the front. Which one will you claim to be your own?
The vessel is affixed to a sterling silver chain adorned with tiny onyx beads.
I designed this pendant in a sketchbook, transferred the design into FYI Pure Silver Clay. My work is then embellished, filed, sanded, and refined. Once they are to my liking, I fire it in my kiln where the clay binder burns off and the pure silver metal is left. From there I polish and patina them for effect.
The piece dangles .75″ x 2″ from a 20″ onyx adorned sterling silver cable chain.
