This pendant was created as a side project alongside a ring I built for my boyfriend for the holidays. It is fine silver, and was created using PMC (precious metal clay). Unlike most of my work, this pattern is pressed in from an alligator skin pattern that had been roll printed on other metal, as opposed to etched. The pattern is highlighted by a greasy, rough polishing job, rather than a mirror finish. The black polish sits in the recesses of the pattern, creating density. The piece is about 1″ in length and 1/3″ wide at its largest points.   You can be the proud owner of this pendant – it’s for sale at my Etsy shop, the link is on the left of this page.  Plus, look for more holiday gift posts in the next few days (after people have received them, I don’t want to ruin the surprise).  Here’s another shot of the pendant in process:
