Brass

Diameter: 33 mm


I am very excited about this pendant, which was inspired by the Art Nouveau movement. I find it difficult to incorporate Art Nouveau elements into my jewellery designs while still keeping the design relevant to modern tastes (since that movement sadly fell out of fashion almost completely). This pendant is a successful attempt I believe.

The drawing was etched into brass. I painted a piece of brass plate with nail polish and scratched the design onto the metal (removing some of the nail polish). Then I placed the metal in acid, which ate away at the exposed metal. After the etching I simply removed the nail polish with ethanol and finished the piece as a pendant.
