Graphite and enamel over copper, sterling silver, agate beads, and three glass beads (the grey ones at the center and the drop at the back). 2.5cm diameter. 48 cm long necklace.

I haven’t been updating as of late, probably because nothing has really been going on. It is a very snowy and cold winter in Europe, and I actually enjoy it a lot more than the[…]
The Weighing of the Heart Enamel over copper, brass. I finally finished it! I thought it was overdue today so I got some chain and finished the setting. The enamel is perhaps more clearly seen[…]
