Necklace on a 30" Rolo Chain
Sterling silver, vitreous enamel, 23.5k gold
Hand painted, torch fired, hand fabricated.
Souls ascend during an extinction level event. I created the enameled scene by "painting" with powdered glass and gold on copper with tiny brushes and needles, then I fired the design with a torch to permanently fuse it to the metal.
This piece is part of my Tiny Catastrophes series, a collection of limited edition, one-of-a-kind memento mori pieces that explore the fragility of life and our desire to prevent, explain, and control the uncontrollable.
