I have decided to begin making a series titled “chasing the sun” and here is the first piece! Lets chase the sun through a street light☀
I’ve made the “Chasing the sun pendant” using vitreous enamel, sterling silver and a faceted small amethyst. Enamelling is done over copper blank . First, I made the blank and counter-enamelled it. The enamel coat on the pieces’ back and surface is the result of applying several layers of enamel grains. I have bended and shaped the silver wires, and fused them on the basecoat enamel on the blank. Then, I start filling the created cells using enamel coats. After applying each layer, I fire the pieces in my kiln at around 785 degrees celsius. This is a technique called “cloisonne”.
And then, I set the enamel in silver and added amethyst stone ✔
The width of the pendant is about 2.8 cm and the height of pendant is about 5.2cm
The pendant will come with a solid sterling silver chain necklace
