YOJ 2004 Week 18

This pendant measures only 1.5 inches high and was made for a very special commission: the 70th birthday of a woman who loves sailing, photography, music, the ocean and bird watching. At first I thought that combining all these different loves in an organic-looking pendant would be quite challenging given the size of the piece (the request was to keep it under 1 3/4" high), but eventually the composition worked itself out. The pendant can also be used as a pin.

Charlotte's Loves pin/pendant: sterling silver and clouded aquamarines.
