Turtle Love pendant by Robin of Adornedbyrobin

My Turtle Love pendant was inspired by two things, a love of nature and the gulf oil crisis. Sea turtles in particular amaze me because they are so helpless on land and seem to soar in the water. I used my torch to create a heat patina for the first time, which was more difficult than I expected.

Love is ... - Fine silver pendant with Love is... inscription by Ghislaine of GS Creations

These two intertwind hearts are made with 99.9% pure silver. They are stamped with the words "Love is...". These letters have been oxidized to bring them out and the center of the piece has been filled with transluscent red glass paint.
