Art: Lunar Surface by Artist Revere J

This pendant is heavily influenced by the Mid-Century modern "Googie" style of archetecture.

Growing up in Southern California in the sixties and seventies the Mid-Century Modern style was always a part of the landscape for me, something about the crisp clean design resonates with me. The style within Mid-Century Modern known as Googie that was prevalent in Diners, Car Washes, Shopping Malls and many other So Cal structures always fascinated me, sadly many of those buildings are now gone bulldozed in the name of progress or developement.

This piece is an interpretation of that design style in cast sterling Silver. The Lunar surface texture was created by adding ash to the mold before pouring the molten metal, once cleaned it was chemically treated to create some color over the texture, finally the sides and holes were polished to a bright satin to create some contrast.
