Asterisms and constellations refer to celestial bodies that form a star pattern in the sky. In astronomy, the zodiac is a ring of constellations that fall within the ecliptic, or path of the sun throughout a year's cycle. The moon and many other planets fall within the ecliptic as well.

The division of the ecliptic into the zodiac signs is believed to date back to Babylonian times in the beginning of the 1st millennium BC.

I am so excited to rework my original Constellations and the Night Sky series from early 2010! This coin pendant was formed and sculpted out of fine silver with a constellation imprint created from my own ink drawing. It was tumble polished, given a soft patina, then hand polished to draw out the highlights. Genuine wire wrapped gemstones are clustered around the coin pendant. They reflect the element (earth, air, fire, water) associated with the zodiac sign.

Cancer, a water sign, holds faceted London Blue topaz and aquamarine. The double rolo chain measures 18" and the pendant is around 3/4" high.

Metal clay work is a very involved handmade process which results in distinct and one-of-a-kind creations. Small variations and imperfections are part of the beauty and charm of this medium, and it can produce some stunning results. Once fired, silver metal clay becomes .999 pure fine silver.
