1976 Montreal Olympiad $5 Dollar Silver Coin, Deeply Sculpted, Engraved, Textured
“This pendant was inspired by two slightly separated events. While at the beach during a late afternoon, I watched a raven hopping around and hunting for something to eat on the beach. Shortly afterwards, as daylight faded rapidly to dusk, a new crescent moon became visible. It was beautiful and reminded me of Raven’s role in releasing the Ball of Light.
The silver coin is thicker than standard silver stock, so it allows me to carve extra deep to give a sculptural look to the pendant. The pendant’s back is left as is to show its beginnings as a coin.”
