1″ x 1″, glass and marble

I cut these pieces using a hammer and hardie, a mosaic artist’s traditional tool; a blade set into a tree stump, and a hammer with a straight narrow end.  When you place stone or glass on the thin edge of the hardie and tap the hammer on top, the piece splits with almost no effort.  I like the way the tool focuses all of your energy on the task at hand.  I hope the process, and this pendant, can represent a new focus of my energy on each task at hand.
