Molecular Bond Pendant

Artist Statement:  A delicate glimmer of blue light hanging on a sterling silver chain.

First I felt the wool using hot water and soap. After leaving it to dry overnight, I embroider it with silver and contrasting cerulean thread, then attach it to sterling silver components, including a clasp I have hand forged and hammered.

The bead is attached to the chain itself, so the clasp will not slide around on your neck. It is also embroidered on both sides in case it flips over.

The bead measures approximately 3/4" (18mm) in diameter, and the chain is 22" (175mm) around.
