Dyed nylon adjustable pendant – scarlet
A Karen Whiterod nylon scarlet and gold-leaf earring refabricated into adjustable pendant. Through the 90s I was a jewellery-designer maker. This is from a pair of earrings, part of my first range of jewellery using nylon and gold-leaf (the dots). I resist-dyed each segment. The shape was made three-dimensional by forming into aluminium, then rivetted to hold the form.

Through the 90s I was a jewellery-designer maker working with nylon. This pendant is made from a pair of earrings in my Gold-leaf dots range, the first collection of jewellery I made with nylon. This is resist dyed scarlet to make a pattern. The shape was made three-dimensional by forming into aluminium, then rivetted with brass wire to hold the form. The dyed pattern is enhanced with dots of gold-leaf. The nylon has been glass-bead blasted (a similar process to sand blasting but much finer) to give a fine matt surface on one side.
