Small Cylinder Seal: the Lacuna

There is nothing we can see or hear that isn't a manifestation of enlightened energy, that isn't a doorway to a sacred world
- Pema Chodron

made of: silver, copper, vitreous enamel, iron oxide transfer
measurements: Without the silver bail, the cylinder measures almost 1.75 inches high and is 3/4ths of an inch wide.
chain: The sterling silver chain is just over 28 inches long, and includes a sterling lobster clasp. Please let me know if you would prefer a different length.
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 to tell the stories we may have forgotten.
