My favorite Caribbean island is Antigua and I try to stay as informed about what's going on there as I can. I recently read an article that stated the "leatherback turtles had returned to Antigua". Along with this article was a photo of this beautiful sea turtle, and my first thought was to make it in white satin metal clay to capture the grayish tones. This turtle is an original design hand carved by me first into polymer clay. I then used the mold to create the pendants using white satin metal clay. The pendant measures approximately 1" wide by 7/8" long and a hidden bail on the back is angled so the turtle appears to be swimming. I have paired this beautiful pendant with an 18" 1mm black leather cord necklace which closes with an antiqued silver lobster clasp. This necklace can easily be worn by men or women.
White satin metal clay is a combination of copper, iron and tin, which gives it the silver color and is very strong and lightweight. It is made from powdered metals combined with an organic binder and water. It can be modeled, molded, or sculpted then when heated to a high temperature, the binder burns away, and the metal particles sinter (or fuse) into metal. Each piece is handcrafted and is one-of-a-kind.
