Gold edged Windfall Lichen Pendant
Fine Silver wind fall lichen pendant edged with 24 carat Gold on a Gold plated chain.
I collected this piece of windfall lichen from the woodland outside my studio. It was dried and painted with many layers of Fine Silver before being kiln fired. During the firing proces the lichen burnt away and the silver sintered together creating a Fine Silver version of the real piece of lichen. 24 carat Gold was then painted onto the edges of the piece before it was refired. Each piece created in this way is completely unique.
Model wears a different lichen pendant (sold) created using the same technique.
