Great Ball of Fire

Art: Great Ball of Fire by Artist Robin Cruz McGee
This is the second pin in the Comet Series, pieces combining Keum Boo, dichromatic glass and precious metals. The top piece has 24 kt. gold foil applied to fine silver. It was then formed lightly and tumbled in steel shot to burnish it. That is what gives it its luster. The center piece is fine silver and has a central gem of dichromatic glass in a setting of gallery wire. The bottom drop is carved ebony. The inspiration for the Comet Series combines medieval representations of comets, as well as the contemporary representations of flames used in pop culture.
