I have the opportunity to enter a piece of jewelry in the newly-created "jewelry" category in the sculpture division. Actually, a gentleman I work with who is a wonderful bronze sculptor when he's not being our sales manager told me about this and encouraged me to make an entry. I've decided to create a necklace around the theme "mermaid's treasure". It will involve sea glass, large freshwater pearls, seashell-shaped glass beads, and a handmade silver pendant made with PMC and my own mold made from a real seashell similar to the ones above. I'm excited about this! The most challenging part will be getting the seashell pendant made as it will require me doing things I've not had any experience with, and firing the pendant in a friend's kiln. I'm hoping for the best and will, of course, photograph the results.
