The First One is Listed!
Pendant Number 1
I finally finished my pendants into "neck pieces" this week. I added leather lacing to each one and some rivets to make them look super awesome and now, the first one is up in my Etsy shop. I am diggin' how they are coming out and hope to expand on the idea a bit. I think the thing I like the most is watching them patina before my eyes. Since the metal I am using is scrap from my mask making, it already has some texture and patina to it. I am adding more texture to help each piece of metal fit into the whole piece but I am leaving the rest alone. Each piece is polished with a brass brush and soap and water only. I only sand down the rough spots here and there. So they are all going to naturally patina over time. My goal is to have a completely new idea look like it has been around for ages, just like my masks do. I am having way too much fun with these, I hope you enjoy looking at them too:)
