Waxing Moon Celestial Pendant in Sterling Silver
This amazing ceramic cratered moon cabochon was hand made by artist Katy Kestler at Slash Of Blue. I had to stalk her on instagram, waiting for her to have a shop update, and then I pounced, because she sells out of her cabochons so quickly! The cab measures just over 1 1/4 inches across. I set it in sterling silver gallery wire, asymmetrically adorned with a tiny brass man-on-the-moon. The piece is soldered to 20 gauge sterling silver sheet, and above it, a brass crescent moon is soldered to two layers of 20 gauge SS sheet. Total pendant dimensions are 2 1/2" x 1 1/2". Suspended from a 17" sterling silver rolo chain, finished with a hook and eye clasp. The entire piece has been oxidized (darkened) with liver of sulpher and tumbled for several hours to bring out the highlights of the metal.
