Everything is transparent, nothing dark, nothing resistant; every being is lucid to every other in breadth and depth, light runs through light. And each contains all within itself, and at the same time, sees all in every other. While some manner of being is dominant in each, we are mirrored in every other. -Plotinus
made of: silver, copper, 24k, amazonite, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: The large enameled medallion measures 2 inches in diameter. Including the bail and amazonite detailing, it measures just over 2.75 inches long. An adjustable sterling silver chain is included, and can be clasped at 18”, 20” or 24” .
process: The enameling process for making this pendant 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 along with 24k gold details to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
