Fine Silver Ginkgo Pendant
Pendant is a 3/4 in length on 16 inch sterling silver ball chain.
Ginkgo leaf a symbol of unity of opposites, by some seen as a symbol of changelessness, possessing miraculous power, bearer of hope and of the immeasurable past, a symbol of love. Because of all its properties it is associated with longevity.
The process begins by rolling out a flat layer of silver clay. I use a custom template to cut out a shape. This shape is dried and each design element is added separately. They are held in place with some wet clay. When the whole assemblage is completely dry it is fired in a kiln. I polish and or patina my pieces to give them that desired look.
Art Clay Silver is made of pure metal powders mixed with non-toxic binders and water. When kiln, torch or stove top fired, the binders burn away, leaving pure silver (99.9% silver).
