Silver "Peace on Earth" pendant
Handmade Sterling silver and enamel pendant
I was moved by the way this turned out. I was thinking about all the people
of the world, old, young, hungry, oppressed, reaching out for joy and happiness and I think this necklace catches that. Well I would like to think it does.
Construction: I melt random shapes of Sterling silver with my blow torch until they are molten and shimmering – they form strange shapes. I then arrange these shapes until I find something meaningful, then solder onto a back piece of silver. It is then enamelled and kiln fired and bears my hallmark from London Assay Office for Sterling silver.
This is a dramatic and substantial statement piece.
Dimensions: 7 cm (to top of hanging ring) x 1.5 cm (2.7″ x 0.6″)
