Gold edged Lichen Pendant
Fine silver lichen pendant edged with 24 karat gold on a gold plated chain (please contact me if you would like ths to be swapped for a rubber necklet, a neckwire or a leather cord).
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 Karat gold was then painted onto the edges of the piece before it was refired and burnished.
Each piece created in this way is a one off and completely unique.
The model is wears a different lichen pendant (sold) created using the same technique. Please contact me if you would like a pendant similar to these in a different size and I'll search for a piece of lichen to suit you. Prices will vary depending on the size.
