Medusa featured in Fire Mountain ad!
This piece was a finalist in the 2012 metal clay competition.
I used Bronzclay the make a face with snake hair, and snake heads. I the. Used bronze jewelry wire to wrap the snake heads and a rattle tail, and make a framework of swirls. I used iridescent purple beads as accents along the edges.
Using the same wire I made a viking knit chain. The clasp is made of Bronzclay and is two intertwined snakes. The caps are brass tubes, that I forged and drilled holes in. The chain is epoxied into the end caps.
