This pendant shows tiny fish etched onto a decorative rectangular pendant.
Etching is a fun but time consuming process. I start the process with sheet silver. I print my pattern onto a special paper. The design is burnished onto the heated metal and then the paper is peeled off. The silver sheet is then floated on an acid bath. The exposed metal gets etched with the pattern. After I have achieved a deep enough etch the silver is neutralized and the blue design is scrubbed off with a solvent.
I cut, filed, and then smoothed all sides with sand paper. I soldered two rings on the back to hold the chain.
After polishing the pendant the little fish were painted with patina, to give me the blues, greens, and purples that I love.
They say this style of pendant makes the wearer look taller.
Dimensions: 1 and 7/8th inch X 1 inch
Sterling silver box chain 18 inches.
PLEASE NOTE: This particular pendant has sold. I can create a similar pendant when I have another etching session as a custom piece. Please contact me for details.
