Artist Statement: This functional magnifying pendant is just the thing to help you read that ancient map, or manuscript. The Ocular was lovingly crafted from sheet copper, and 21 guage sterling silver, and riveted by hand with brass wire. The silver disc has a diameter of 4.5 cm, and the lens aperture is approximately 2.2 cm. The silver has been delicately etched with curves and angles, and very fine print on both sides. The pendant has been patinaed and gently brushed. It is strung on 24 inches of patinaed flat link brass chain and finished with a large brass ring (fashioned from a clock balance wheel), and a hand formed brass S-clasp. The necklace can be clasped onto the large ring, or onto any of the flat links. This necklace is suitable for man or woman, and it is just the thing to wear on your next adventure!
