Honor your mother this Mother’s Day by gifting her with this unique handmade pendant. A vibrant heart holds the word for mother in various languages. The steel wire shape was hand-bent and the onion paper with the words first dipped in encaustic medium and then adhered to the wire with encaustic medium. The square back of the pendant is embellished with lime green gift paper.
This pendant’s heart contains the words:
mai taica ana matka
mere mother mama mom
anya fu iloy manay
moeder ma mamma
As delicate and translucent as this pendant seems, the wire gives it a sturdiness that will give the wearer joy for years to come.
This lightweight pendant measures 2 1/4 inches long by 2 inches wide and comes with a black satin cord.
Encaustics should be cared for as you would for any fine art piece. Encaustic derives from the word “burn in” and is a process of applying molten wax colors to a surface for the creation of images or decoration that began more than 2 millennia ago with Roman Egyptian wax portraits.
