Occasionally I will highlight a custom order just for fun. This particular commission was to be created after Perseus and The Pleiades, two shield pendants that were created as part of the Constellations of the Night Sky series earlier this year.
The Orion constellation was requested, with a specific highlight toward the star Rigel which sits in the lower righthand corner of the star group.
The result was an oxidized fine silver shield, sculpted and textured by hand, with a clay painted border around the edge. A cabochon of iolite was set into the bezel and gunmetal chain was used to complete the necklace.
My workspace is full of all kinds of chaos, but don't worry; you'll get to see it soon enough. :)
