A New Commission Because of Facebook
(Patchogue, New York USA)
Since I’ve recently become obsessed with metalwork involving cold connections, my next step was to incorporate beads or stones. I’ve just found a way to do just that in this pendant.
I used a green Agate bead that seems to be bursting out of its stamped brass surrounding. It was a happy accident and I liked the way it turned out.
On another note, I am thrilled that a Facebook friend, who happens to be a Benedictine Monk, asked me to create a pendant for him after seeing the above pendant.
He wanted a cross on a circle similar to the pendant with the green agate. He liked it so much that he commissioned me to create ten more for his brotherhood.
I don’t claim to be an especially religious person, but this thrills me. I feel honored and wanted to share this.
