Description

This pendant is part of the Touch Stone series. The term touchstone originally comes from a certain type of stone that was used to measure the genuineness of gold or silver by how it leaves its mark on the touchstone. These pieces are made with 23.75 ct and 22 ct gold leaf, genuine silver leaf and palladium leaf. At each stage of sculpting, sanding, painting, leafing and varnishing, I use my fingers to ensure each piece has an inviting form and texture. The immediacy of touch is a device to bring you into the present moment by creating awareness of the senses, the here and now.

The sculpting material is reinforced with steel and must be formed quickly due to a short curing time. I then file and sand it to the final desired shape. The shape has a way of informing the tones, the leaf palette and the highlights and shadows that I create with the gilding, the paint, and ultimately the layering and blending of the various elements.

The final coating which protects the leaf from tarnishing is non-toxic. Each of these pieces has 13 stages on average and take about 8 to 10 days from start to finish to create due to the full curing of the sculpting material, the drying of oil paint (some have paint under the gilding) the leaf layers and final coatings.

This particular pendant measures 32 x 13.5 mm - a photograph of it on my fingers is shown in the group.

The price includes an 18 or 20 inch (50 cm) sterling silver snake chain and a beautiful long pile black velvet pendant box (shown in the last photograph).
