This is so awesome, I love it!!! The design looks prefect with the winding leaves around the pentagram and the rich purple amethyst gives it a magickal look. Do more tarot cards and Druid symbols 😀
Ever since I started etching I can’t seem to do anything else in jewelry. I’m obsessed with the possibilities of creating mini works of art to wear. I finally get to draw, letter and doodle again by creating images on metal.
The center piece of this necklace was inspired by one of my favorite Tarot card images – the Ace of Pentacles. I especially like the artwork in the Robin Wood Tarot Deck.
This was a time consuming, labor intensive, project! I cut the shape out of metal sheet, filed it all around, punctured tiny holes at either end, drew the pattern I designed on the piece with a Sharpie marker, etched it in Ferric Chloride and cleaned it up.
I dipped it in Liver of Sulfur, sanded it again and finally sealed it with Protec A Clear – two coats. That was just for the center piece!
