Late last spring, the brightest planet in our solar system, Venus, appeared as a small dot moving across the sun for seven hours. Venus’s transit in front of the sun will not happen again for a little over a hundred years. What a sight!

This hollow form shadowbox pendant is made of turquoise, copper, and fine silver. The copper is heated to create a deep red and gold color, which is set off by the clear blue of turquoise and the cool shine of silver. The traditional shadowbox technique is used in a very modern design.

5/8 inch diameter, 1/4 inch deep. Entirely hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. Signed.
