Sandi is a gorgeous big hand-painted pendant strung on a copper metallic adjustable leather strand. I accented it with copper beads that reflect the pattern in the pendant and added a raku bead.
For the pendant I hand-painted the inside depressions with a coppery metallic paint that I applied by dipping the end of a wire into it and transferring it carefully. I hung this on a bail I created out of the coppery metallic leather which I wrapped with copper wire.
The raku bead I made with my brother who is a potter. One day we sat and made beads and when they were ready we threw them into the raku kiln and let the fire do its thing before pulling them out and smothering them with wood shavings and clamping a lid on them to finish them off. I'm quite proud of the raku beads we made together.
It's another one of a kind necklace as I never make the same thing twice. Why? If you buy one of my creations I want you to know that you'll never see another piece like yours. We are all unique individuals and we need to wear jewelry that is unique to just us. Don't you agree?
