Star In Hand was one of the designs created specifically for the Hope collection. Of all my spontaneous collections, this one comes at the close of a turbulent year, perhaps the most universally turbulent one of our lifetimes. It was created in the painstaking ancient technique of cloisonné. After designing the linework, I bend itty-bitty wires into the designs, which are then filled with thin layers of glass powder, each layer requiring separate kiln firings. For more about this technique, have a look at my IGTV on the subject.
The piece may be finished as a ring in your size (see example pictured for an idea of what the band will look like). I can also make it into a little pendant necklace for you, let me know in the notes.
It is a one of a kind, collectable artwork and signed and dated on the reverse. To me, this is the ultimate memento piece for the year - and I have only made one of it.
All handmade jewelry is delicate. Though by no means as fragile as some gemstones, vitreous enamels can break or chip if mishandled. No drops, shocks, tugs or chemicals - and it will last to be buried with you inside your pyramid.
