Spirituality is a ripple

I came about this design from seeing a similar shaped pendant on TV and thought it was a really beautiful shape to work with, I thought of how to give it a more 3D feel so it would not look so flat I then decided to fly press the shape. I also didn't want a plain surface and I came up with the rippled pattern which I etched into the metal.
The colour you see on the metal is a form of pattination and is not permanent.
The chain I used is called Byzantine chain which is a complex form of joining jump rings, it takes a very long time to make but is highly rewarding once finished.
