The physicality of fabrication - The fusion of old world goldsmithing with modern design

Translation: The Lord is my light
I love the physicality of fabrication:
the hiss of quenching precious metal,
the smell of the materials,
the sound of my hammer ...

Tonight I made this pendant, starting with molten recycled sterling silver and old world hand methods.    One sparkling vintage diamond is bead-set on top.  Embellishing the personalized message is a cross on the bail, as well as detailed leaves and shell.   Offering a glimpse into the past, the designs in this pendant were all handmade by a 19th century English craftsman, which I carefully embossed and then oxidized.
