A Doggy Portrait in Precious Metal Clay
I can finally now show you my first precious metal clay little sculpture. Well, sculpture might give you the wrong idea but it’s a non-abstract three-dimensional form.
I had to wait with this post until I could get the pendant to the person it was meant for. It was a sort of belated Christmas surprise.
So, here it is.
I did not plan out this pendant at all. I had a ball of silver PMC left because I was working on another piece when the idea hit me. It was the kind of “I wonder if I can” thought. Honestly, I never really expected it to turn out well. I used a photo as a reference and next thing I knew, it actually looked like her.
I am quiet proud of it and I think I made someone happy as well. It hardly can get any better than that!

I try to create crisp edges and clear shapes in many of my pieces by cold working the glass after the fusing process. Cold working is a time consuming process in which the glass is sanded with consecutively finer and finer grid until it is shaped and the glass is completely smooth.
Many of the pendants, brooches and earrings have 99.9% pure silver inclusions and all of the wire and bails I use are sterling silver.
