Description

"Spot" is one of my new series of jewelry featuring hand-sawn computer circuit boards. As a veteran of many Silicon Valley start-ups, I love the idea of merging art and technology...and this series of jewelry does just that! Coupled with my love of dogs (especially Dachshunds)...the result is this happy and heartwarming pendant.

"Spot" features a sweet little Dachshund with a flower petal ear and a spots on his body. I hand-sawed the form out of the circuit board and then formed the custom bezel out of copper. The ear and spots are made of my own polymer clay millefiori canes; little mini masterpieces sliced thin, cured and set in the pendant. The final composition is then encased and domed in jewelry-grade crystal resin, which brightens, encases and slightly magnifies the layers, giving the pendant depth and additional visual interest.

The tipsy necklace moves with you, giving further life to this mini masterpiece!

Creating the treasures in this series has been an absolute delight. The circuit boards have been cut into different shapes and encased with a hand-formed soldered copper bezel. Each circuit board pendant is artfully collaged with graphic, cured slices of polymer clay canes. The final polymer collage is then enrobed and domed with a thick layer of crystal-clear, jewelry-grade resin. The resin permanently affixes the elements to the circuit board but also magnifies the imagery in the collage. The final result is STUNNING. The pictures really don't do it justice!

The hanging bail is made of copper, and the pendant comes very strong woven black cord, finished with a copper plated lobster claw clasp. The necklace itself is 16" with a copper extension chain that allows you to adjust the necklace up to a max of 18" and vary the drape of the pendant depending on your specific outfit.

The pendant is 1-¾" wide (nose to tail) and about 1" tall from head to foot.
