I love taking molds of organic material to use in my creations. This leaf was from a vine near my casita in Loreto, Mexico. I rolled it out with a cold bottle of Bohemian! Lovely dichroic glass adds sparkle.
Silver Art Clay is made from silver reclaimed from photography and X-ray film, combined with an organic binder. It can be formed just like clay: rolled, stamped, coiled, joined, and is then dried. Then it is fired by kiln or flame and the organics burn out, leaving either fine or sterling silver depending upon the formula. It is versatile and fun to work!
Dichroic glass is a fused glass containing various metal oxides, giving the piece different colors through reflection and refraction. Colors often shift with the angle of view. Dichroic glass was first created by NASA to serve as heat shields for the space shuttle. I refer to it as “glass lasagna” as it is baked in layers in a kiln.
18" sterling silver flat cable neck chain is included.
