This is a pendant that I made during my class last Saturday in-between demos and helping the students out. There were some quiet moments when everyone was happily working, so I dabbled with a few things I have been working on. I had ordered the Tall Tag pendants from Vintaj as my gift from the last order and I was excited to punch holes in them and attach bits of metal and clay to form long pendants.
The long nuts and bolt screws from Objects and Elements are so very versatile and are perfect for making cold connections to join materials that might not otherwise be riveted or hammered (like fired clay). They can be screwed together, the bolts cut down and filed, and even carefully hammered to flare out the cut end of the bolt to keep the nut in place. Really fun stuff!
Some of these clay parts are new. Little bits of clay that I pressed into molds that I made of model train wheels and other little bits. I have a few more pendants like this, but this one is going away tomorrow on a special journey to a secret place! I hope to make more someday soon.
