#tbt I made this pendant almost 3 years ago. The only fabricated piece I’ve kept for myself, I named this one “catalyst” it’s when my life changed in so many ways. It’s completely cold connected, i didnt use a torch once in the whole process, in part because I couldn’t afford one. Up until this point I had been working shitty dead end jobs in kitchens to make ends meet but they stopped scheduling me cause business was slow, running outa options and excuses i threw myself into creating. right then I went through a break up and found out my grandfather had cancer the next day, I designed this in the middle of all of that emotion and pain. It allowed for me to move through the pain to see the beauty of it all, and to find gratitude for my experience. I wore it when I was able to go say bye to my grandpa on his death bed, one of the most powerful experiences of my life. It opened my mind and my heart with the pain, being the catalyst to love and gratitude. To turn something, we percieve as negative, with love into something beautiful and possitive. Thank you all for the support over the past few years, you guys are amazing. Much love, bless up.
