Goldfish Pendant

Artist Statement: I created this mini goldfish pond to mimic a cute design often found on Japanese papers and fabrics- complete with anacharis stems and bubbles!

This 1-1/2 x 3/4" silver plated pendant includes an 18" (with 2" extender chain) black ribbon cord necklace. The following cords are available by request: black ribbon/cord, navy blue ribbon/cord, turquoise ribbon/cord, bright blue ribbon/cord, black leather cord, and 16" silver colored ball chain (see my other listings for these colors).

I sculpted the bubbles, anacharis plants and koi from colored polymer clay, and added markings to the fish with a high-quality acrylic paint that has been heat set for durability. I used a filigree design to create the spiraling water- coiling, placing and cutting each strand of shimmery clay by hand. Two coats of sealant should help protect it, but avoid exposing it to water and extreme heat or cold.
