Sutton Slice Necklace

Recently, I taught a lesson on the Sutton slice, a process that allows the polymer artist to create bas-relief images much like cameos and wedgewood. Of course, when I teach I usually make a sample as a demonstration so students get to see the steps and the finished product. This simple little black pendant with antique gold leaves is the piece I made.  I used a head pin with a ball end imbedded in the top to create the loop for the chain.  What I discovered after baking was that the ball end prevents the wire from coming out, but it allows the pendant to swivel on the ball.  This would allow me to put a design on each side and make the pendant reversible - even while being worn!  Fun idea.
