I have been commissioned to make a pendant. Yay! The only requirement was to use an Ankh in my design.
Some of you have asked to see the progress. So just for you, a sneak preview of the pendant in process.
First the design. The pendant will measure a little less than 1" in diameter. I'm using the second drawing down on the left side.
Second, piercing the metal and attaching the bail. I added just a little too much solder on the bail so I'll have to clean that up. When will I ever learn? The Ankh will sit on top of the copper piece.
The back side.
All that is left for me to do is put it all together. I have already filed and patinated and sealed. Although I don't know how I feel about the sealing part. It's some sort of polymer that keeps the metal from oxidizing. I kind of like how the metal ages with time but not everyone likes that.
I think the hardest part is figuring out what chain or cord would look best with the pendant.
Have a great Tuesday!
