A simple square frame in jet black polymer clay holds within it a beautiful and firey mix of colours which has been created using a technique that is inspired by the glass makers 'dichroic' style.
In this pendant gold leaf and inks are used as an inclusion which is sealed by firing translucent clay over the design, the piece is then sanded multiple times, buffed and brought to a glossy finish to really bring out the depth of the colours within. In this pendant the colour range is deep and firey, with rich burgundy tones blending into deep orange and gold tones. The method to produce this colourful design relies on a fairly organic approach and therefore each piece that is produced is completely unique and cannot be repeated.
The pendant has been strung onto a simple black cord of faux suede thonging so that the colours within the pendant remain the focal point of the piece. The thonging is fastened with a simple and easy to use gold-plated hook fastener.
