I took an extra long strip of black tin and created a mountain silhouette within the enclosing riveted structure. The form is then filled with concrete and a yarrow leaf was embedded. Once dry the piece is sanded. The final process is to highlight the leaf form with a bit of colored wax and then add silver leaf to the moon. The whole piece is then protected with a thin coat of soft wax.
The finished pendant is approximately 1" (24mm) wide and 2” long. It’s finished with an 18” stainless chain with a lobster clasp and 2” extender.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
I’ve recently partnered with the non-profit One Tree Planted. $1 from your order today will plant a tree somewhere on the globe.
