I had some time at the library on Friday to sketch for a while, so I tried new versions of the resin inlay pendant.
This is the version I like best. I've already done the top piece in metal clay and shaped the faux bone. I'm waiting on cabochons and bezel cups to proceed.
Guess I should make the layers clear. The top sketch is the front piece, sculpted in metal clay with the branches and bird suspended over the opening. The second image is the back, made of carved faux bone. The third image is an interior layer of faux bone that shows around the edges. It has a cutout to give room for an inset of resin and found objects behind the bird and branches.
