Pencil Automaton Pendant
See this little jiggy pencil machine in action HERE.
This original and one of a kind art-work, blends humour, recycling, traditional metalsmithing skills and childish wonder all in one item. Of course you don't have to wear it, maybe you are a collector, I make a novelty like this only once every few years....it's a time consuming act, making an automaton, but every now and then I just can't resist it.
Pencils, a fragment of pencil tin, a small semi-precious gem, copper and cotton twine all come together to make this smile-inducing item. It measures 3.5cm across and 7cm in length from bottom to pencil tip. The pencil tips have been sealed in varnish to prevent them from mistakenly drawing on your clothing, the pencils are also set in their seats with resin, so that they are not lost. It hangs on a lime green cotton cord.
