Tiny tin men amulet


You have come to the shore. There are no instructions.

"The journey of awakening is just remembering who and what we are, remembering what we've always known."                          --Adyashanti

made of: silver, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: This enameled tube bead pendant with 3 tin men in march step around the tiny cylinder, measures 1/2 of an inch long and is 1/4th of an inch wide and hangs on a sterling chain. Choose from a 16, 18, or 20 inch chain.
process: The enameling process for making this necklace is labor-intensive. It involves laying layers of finely-ground glass onto the copper forms and firing them multiple times at very high temperatures in a kiln. Lots of protective gear involved at every step. Then I painstakingly gather, cut and arrange tiny fragments of text and imagery from many different eras in history and fuse them into the enamel to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
