This shell pendant is made entirely from paper. I hand-cut the strips from acid-free charcoal paper. The part that looks yellow is actually edge-gilded with 23k gold. I coated the inside with clear varnish to protect it from wear. This won “Best of Show – Crafts” at the Maryland State Fair. It is about 2″ x 2″, with a gold chain. Artist’s collection.
