The sun is shining through a rain drop, peeking out, wanting to come out.......
For this piece I rolled out a snake from the metal clay, shaped it into the rain drop, and let it dry. I then added the sun by using 5 layers of syringe clay. I filled in any gaps with more syringe clay and then sanded and filed till it was smooth. After everything was dry I added the sapphires, and a light blue spinel.
It was then fired, tumbled and finished by adding the wire wrapped padparadscha sapphire roundels and Iolite (also known as water sapphire) roundels and teardrop briolettes adding to the watery sunshine feel.
Or, as we call it in Portland, Or., Liquid sunshine!

Strung on a sparkly 16 inch sterling silver chain. The pendant is 10 grams of silver and is 3 1/4 inches or 84mm long.

This piece was inspired by a favorite song by the rock band Cinderella, and was created for the Metal Clay Heads March challenge, theme: the Elements. The technique required was syringe work and/or snake rolling. The Elements of water and fire are represented here.
This necklace won first place in the challenge! Thank you to all who voted!

A note on precious metal clay:
ArtClay silver is a recycled product that consists of fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder. The clay can be worked like other forms of clay, sculpted to almost any shape you desire. The product is then fired at an extremely high temperature, either by kiln or torch. The binder burns away resulting in a pure silver (.999) piece.
