March 15 Belize pendant detail
Pendant 2 x 2 1/2
Polymer Clay, wooden beads; antiqued, lightly buffed & waxed. Adjustable bolo closure.
The back panel is comprised of two three thin layers, which are revealed on the sides: cream sandwiched between terra cotta. Initially I had a paper thin linen-textured layer which I stained dark, but then chiseled most of it off, leaving only a suggestion of the linen. The chiseled clay is matte in finish while the fragment has been lightly buffed and waxed, most wiped off to leave only a satin sheen. The bead "bail" repeats the layered aspect of the pendant.
