I love Nature and with the advent of Spring comes lots of green and elusive tree spirits!
This Dryad Spirit Pendant is 3 1/4" x 1 1/2", handsculpted using Kato translucent clay. The imprint is of a skeleton leaf on which I have painted the face of a dryad. Done using watercolors, Pearl ex pigments, her eyes follow you from whatever position you are in. The head pin and jump ring is gold wire sealed with 18 kt leafing done in a spiral pattern. Back of pendant done using hand tinted sage, translucent and black cane. Hand sanded, buffed, sealed and signed.
