This piece was started before my life was put on hold by the death of one of my most loved people. It sat with its black patina unfinished for months. It represented that time where my life was put on hold and felt the darkest. Once I was able to work again this piece finally came to life. Its a reminder that even in the darkest of nights- the sun will rise again. The beauty of a sunrise and the healing power of knowing a new day is coming is embedded in this piece.
No part of this heirloom-quality pendant is cast. Each element is created by hand. The inner scene started as an original drawing on sheet metal that was carefully cut with a handheld jeweler's saw. Each layer was formed and textured giving this scene a realistic view into the mountains. Once it was soldered and polished different patinas were applied. In a long process the colors of the sunrise appeared to glow over the scene. The back of this piece also features a hidden nighttime landscape.
