Two Solar Pendants

I made these by melting a blob of wax onto a mandrel, mounting it in the flexible shaft drill, and turning, using various burins and files to achieve the cut. Then they were marked up, drilled and pierced with a saw. then carved with tiny chisels. After that they’re cast and cleaned up. The lathe technique allows one to make an accurate setting which is one with the piece.
