What materials did you use? This necklace features a hand crafted pendant of a Quan Yin Buddha in fine silver. She is a one of kind creation made of fine silver clay. When fired the clay becomes .999 silver, which is more pure than sterling silver. She has been given a light patina in bluish green tones which goes wonderfully with the beautiful blue aqua terra jasper that accompany her. All other metal components are sterling silver, including the hammered pendant suspender and the clasp. Aqua terra jasper is a very earthy stone... the splashes of blue look like little bodies of water on the surface of a planet giving the stones a very celestial feel. Fitting companions for a Goddess :)

Stunning! Did you carve the Buddha?

Thank you Auphelia :) I wish I could take credit for the Buddha bit...but the main part was created by taking a mold of a jade Buddha, then pressing the silver clay into the mold. I then added to it and had to carve in more detail. The frame and the bail were sculpted by hand.

What a beautiful pendant! Have you been working in silver clay for a while? I love all the components you have combined to make a truly unique piece of art.
