Pendant created by hand from rough material - huge solid chunk of raw covellite with natural pyrite inclusions. Both of the rings are mammoth ivory of different colors indicating either different ages or different minerals in the ground.
Shibui (Japanese) - "expresses an aesthetic sense of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty... Shibui objects appear to be simple overall, but include subtle details such as textures, that balance simplicity with complexity." -Art Nomura, Japan.
The better I get with technical skills the less I want to make them a showcase, and the more I want to use them to display how beautiful nature already is. I feel I've really accomplished something in that accord with this one. The bail design as well as the overall aesthetic are a clear result of the years of work towards this and I'm excited to see where this takes me.
