This cloisonne pendant of the Solar Eclipse is sun shaped approx 1-1/4″ in diameter (not counting the bail, 1-3/4″ with the bail). The black center of the pendant is the moon fully eclipsing the sun. The back of the pendant is white enamel.
Cloisonne pendants are hand-made using wire and glass enamel. The wire is bent into the shape of the design, then layers of enamel (powdered glass) are put on the piece and fired in a kiln to melt the glass onto the metal. Each piece has between 10-12 firings in the kiln. The finished pendant is domed and fired to a glossy shine.
Each pendant comes with a coordinating necklace which is approx 18″ in length.
Since each pendant is handmade one of a kind, it may be slightly different than pictured.
