Happy Friday everyone!
Introducing my latest commissioned piece...
Ooh La La
The dimensions of this piece is...I think 1 1/2" in height and maybe...Ohhhh I don't know. I didn't measure it! Bad Kalaya!
I started with 22 gauge copper and silver. Both pieces were textured and the silver was used to cut out an African symbol, Gye Nyame (jeh N-yah-mee), except God. Translation: No one lives who saw its beginning and no one will live to see it's end, except God. Go here to read more about it.
After doming both pieces for depth, the custom bail and jump rings were soldered to the copper piece, cleaned up, patinated, and then joined by brass rivets. It hangs on a 2 mm leather cord 19" in length.
The back carries a special message but only the wearer knows. I bet you want to know what it says! Hehe.
Well...have a great weekend but FIRST have a fantabulous Friday!
