I get design ideas from the world around me. This design was inspired- believe it or not- by abstract flower shapes I saw on a restaurant wall. I loved how beautiful the overall design was, made with a limited number of shapes strategically placed in relation to one another. I took some sketches of the individual shapes used in the designs, and later began to create my own designs- limiting myself to the same shape types. It’s been a fun design challenge, allowing me to think differently about the way I structure designs and use individual shapes to create an overall effect.
Made from yellow brass sheet, this pendant has been cut to size, had its rough edges smoothed, and then it was polished. The design was rendered by hand and then gently placed into an acid bath which ate away the undesired portions. Once taken from the bath it was washed, antiqued to bring out the beauty revealed by its ordeal, a hole was drilled to allow it to be worn, and then it was re-polished. Strung on brass chain, all the other connections are handmade with brass wire.
Brass does, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the material. It does have a thin protective layer of wax to protect it, but expect the beautiful patina to develop gradually.
