Quiet Contemplation, Starry Night Amongst the Pines, Hand Painted Canvas Pendant with Garnet
Transport yourself to another time and place. I painted this canvas to evoke the calm and sense of wonder I remember from days when I was able to immerse myself in undisturbed nature and skies free from the light of man. This necklace features a one of a kind, hand built setting for the painted canvas, with a frame of polymer clay, silver leafed and black painted clear coated brass accented with garnets. The chain is made of beautiful garnet and glass beads lovingly wire worked and stung together. The berry color of the garnet has a wonderful contrast to the iridescent blue grey glass beads that are reminiscent of ancient glass. My hope was to create a piece that looked as thought it could be an artifact discovered in a long forgotten place. The length is adjustable from 16”-19” and closes with a silver plated lobster claw clasp.
