To make this Chinese lantern pendant I used a variety of techniques, including forming the hollow form with hammers and stakes, soldering, and carving out the pattern, and finally adding 18K gold accents with Keum-Boo. Inside the lantern is a second hollow form that is loose and acts as a gentle bell.
The Chinese lantern is 1.5" wide and hangs 3" from the chain. The handmade sterling silver chain hangs 30" in length (around).
This is a collector's item, definitely a labor of love! It is one of a kind.
