I painted this image of a steelhead trout on a piece of bone and applied several coats of glossy sealer to give it a shiny finish and to protect the painting. The back of the pendant features a tiny steelhead and is signed and dated by me.
The necklace is comprised of wood beads which I have painted a deep blue/green to match the pendant and azurite malachite. The blues and greens evoke a feeling of the watery environment in which the steelhead makes it's home.
The pendant is 1.5 inches/40 mm long and .75 inches/20 mm wide. The necklace measures 21 inches in length. The toggle clasp is made of pewter which contains no lead.
