A New Commission Because of Facebook

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.
