This Winter has been rough on many states! I live in sunny Tucson, Arizona, and am passionate about creating sun symbol pendant designs.
They remind the folks, living where Winter hangs on too long, that Spring is just around the corner!
I love ancient Native American, South American, and African symbols for the sun. I create the designs, then make rubber stamps of each sun symbol.
I press the stamp into Precious Metal Clay, then fire it in my little kiln. It is fun to make them in Fine Silver, Copper and Bronze, which are now available in clay form.
