Horcrux

(2007) Approximately 1 1/2"x2". Silver Art Clay, pure silver wire, green transparent enamel, liver of sulphur.

This replica of Slytherin's locket that will be on the cover of the British adult version of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" was commissioned by :iconperselus:

I took a few liberties with the original, such as not make a locket, but rather a medallion, and instead of setting a gazillion of small cut emerals into the design I used green enamel to highlight the letter, but the rest of it is pretty authentic.

I first cut the oval out of a piece of rolled out clay and added the silver wire on top. After drying I carved the "S" and the ornamentation into the greenware, fired it, cleaned it, added the enamel, fired again and finally antiqued and polished the silver to bring out the detail.

The final piece also has a bail finding added at the top, but as I really needed to get it to the post office at that time, I didn't take another shot of it.

Thank you! It was the cover of the adult version of the British edition that inspired this one.

This is awesome! I just learned how to enamel and I hope I can do something this cool!

Thank you! It's really easy on silver clay, because you don't need to prepare the metal through pickling etc.

Thanks so much. Actually it was inspired by the adult version cover of the British edition of one of the books. The movie horcrux will look very different. The Noble Collection will be selling a replica with a kind of huge prehnite-like cut gemstone on top. I saw it on their preview catalog...

I ordered Malfoy's walking stick a couple of months ago, so they send me the preview items per post now. The pendant should be up on their website, soon.
