I haven’t posted to the blog as much this month, mostly because I have been working on so many things that I cannot share without spoiling some Christmas surprises. But I can share this one, since it’s a gift for my oldest friend and I’m pretty sure she doesn’t read the blog. (Guess I’ll find out if I’m mistaken!)
This is the first of the pendant-sized pony medallions that I have done in a realistic glaze, and I am really happy with it. The green and coral stones in the necklace are unakite, a semiprecious stone common here in the Carolinas. I was especially happy with how well they tied in with the colors in the pendant.
After I finished this piece, I was really tempted to do some of the tiny ponies (5/8″) in realistic glazes. But I waited a bit, and came to my senses!
