This contemporary and chic pendant is handmade by Texas artisan jeweler, Kathy Bankston. These pendants are a true labor of love. As each his handmade. Here are just a few of the steps in making a pendant like this. The design is hand cut from copper, then enameled and torch fired. Then the design is hand drawn and fired again. Once fired the pendent is given another coat of enamel and fired a final time. Once the enamel center piece is completed then the back sketched and hand cut from sterling silver. The silver is hand formed to mold to the back of the enamel. Then the rubies are added as well as the bail. Then the enamel piece is carefully set in it's custom mount and the oxidized surface is polished. The entire pendant is made from hand and completely unique.

Care: Enamel jewelry can be a keepsake that will last a lifetime if taken care of properly. Care should be taken not to drop the pendent. Enamel is glass on metal and if you drop it, the enamel could crack. But don't be fooled, enamel is pretty tough! It takes quite a drop to cause any damage. It can be cleaned as need with a soft cloth and water.
