Elemental Pendant - Water by Ellygator Elemental Pendant - Water by Ellygator
(2008) 2.5" for the pendant including bail, 16" for the necklace. Silver clay (shaped, carved, fired, enameled and antiqued) enamel (Nile green, pale green, opalescent), ocean jasper beads, silver lentil beads, Hill Tribe silver beads, silver wire, clasp finding.

Finally I'm back to doing clay work, and with some commissions coming up and some Christmas presents on the way, there should be more in the next few weeks.

For the four element pendants I chose the traditional alchemistical triangle symbols, a triangle pointing upwards for Air and Fire, a triangle pointing downwards for Water and Earth. The triangles for Air and Earth also have a horizontal line bisecting it, which I tried to incorporate by giving those two pendants more of a horizontal composition, and Fire and Water pendants more of a vertical one.

I carved the design of a cresting wave into the Water pendant and then filled the carved areas with enamel powder. For this pendant I had the stone beads in mind first - just wanted to use these gorgeous ocean jasper rondelle beads, so I was glad to see that my enamel choices picked up on the bead colors perfectly.

Yes, there is a series of all three, if you look in the Silver Clay sub-gallery, they are all together.

...I really need to get my brain checked. Or stop doing all of this in the wee hours of the morning. ;)

No sweat, sometimes I also don't do the deep-dive in another deviant's gallery, just look at the featured pieces...
