Herbie’s Pendant

I collaborated with a 4 years old on this piece.. I was given this little fellow’s drawing (a spider in his web, see below) and was asked to make a pendant for his Mother. I didn’t want to change a thing as thought the drawing was perfect, it has such beautiful simplicity. I got completely absorbed in it and slavishly copied the weight and direction of the lines, even the outline had to be exact, although slightly tilted to give the piece a better drop. The Sapphire representing the ‘Spider’, was taken from a Grandma’s engagement ring. I’ll look forward to working with this young man in the future, he has a wonderful eye!.
