Beachcombing (in progress)
The scratches and long lines are made with an X-acto craft knife. Nail sets used to make the circles. A checkering file was used to create the lines along the edge. The seed beads are on tiny steel veneer pins inserted into holes drilled into the edge with a No. 74 drill. The material is 1/8th inch thick at the beginning, now thinner all around the edge. Patina is burnt sienna acrylic paint.
The pendant is nearly finished and in the end there will be additional items added to the stringing to make the necklace complete.
