Jewel of the day: Tod Pardon Pendastu Brooch
Tod Pardon works in sterling silver and mixed materials. His pieces are quite large and described also by vendors as sculpture, which they certainly are.
This brooch is being offered by New York’s Aaron Faber gallery. They describe it this way: “Tod Pardon’s ‘Pendastu’ brooch/sculpture is 6-5/8″ tall, a mixed media composition in sterling silver and 14K gold, inlaid with bone, pearl, pigmented green and yellow glass, wood, a glass eye, and a headress of green glass and gold beads.”
This sells for USD$2,400.
