Resin “Artifact” Pendant

Imagine being in a foreign land on an archeological dig and finding an ancient bronze pendant.  That’s what I thought of upon finishing this pendant.  Afterall – bronze does go way back!  What makes this piece twenty-first century is the script embedded in clear resin.   A 10mm Chinese turquoise bead dangles on argentium silver wire at the bottom and  a sterling silver disk  and wrapped silver wire bail adorn the top.  It glides along a 22″ antiqued brass chain.  A hammered sterling silver and bronze wire toggle clasp finishes this piece.  I’ll have this piece at my trunk show on September 11 at Brio Gallery in Galena, Illinois.  I hope I’ll see some of you there!
