"Eye of the Sea" PENDANT - Elk Antler Tip Pyrography

This is a pendant I made using a tip from a large elk antler. The marred and scratched surface from the animal fighting and rubbing against trees is very evident in this piece. These antlers are shed naturally every year, and are picked up by hikers and campers around Central Oregon. I cut, drilled and naturally tinted this piece of antler before burning in the completely original design. It depicts a realistic human eye on a creature from the sea, with eight legs, wearing a crown. I shaded the image with a pointillism technique using my burner.  It is signed and dated, and comes with an adjustable cord, so it can be worn around the neck, from the car mirror, or on the wall as artwork.
