Enamel Lichen Pendant Necklace on Viking Knit Chain
This enamel pendant is suspended on a hand made viking knit copper chain to a length of 18". The entire piece was made with my own two hands from copper sheet and copper wire. The bail from which the pendant hangs, as well as the toggle clasp, has been textured and patinated.
The pendent is counter-enameled on the back in black for more strength. On the front a total of 4 coats of enamel (powdered glass) are sifted one at a time and fired in a kiln at 1500°. When the enamel process is completed, i grind off the excess glass, and finish with graduated sanding until silky soft.
The pendant itself is 1.25 inches in diameter.
