Beth Sanderson — 'Grating (Otto)' Necklace
Grating is a series of wearable objects which reimagine a common household form to find whimsy in the ordinary. Enamel pendant rests just below the collar bones on a sterling silver chain. The form is cut and shaped by hand and the enamel on steel creates a completely unique surface.
