From the workshop...

The latest from Moondog Treasures:

moonlit OM fine silver pendant on rosary beaded chain
OM symbol pendant made of silver precious metal clay on a black and silver beaded rosary-style chain. om is the universal peaceful sound of all creation.

this is from my collection of PMC (precious metal clay) pendants. PMC is more pure than sterling silver. it contains particles of pure silver mixed with an organic binder. when the binder is burned away during firing, it leaves a pendant of 99.9% pure silver.

i've pressed a stamp with the om symbol into the clay, then fired with a torch. after that, the pendant was tumbled to buff it to a high polish.

Cool Etsy Artist

Here's an Etsy artist that is currently one of my favorites: Tinder Bloom. I bought this i-phone case from her recently and it is getting lots of use - and compliments!
