Ballerina Pendant

I have made this dancing ballerina logo for a client. I cast it in sterling silver and it measures 1.5 inch in length. I had started out with gaps in the corpus but changed that later on. The ballerina looks so much better that way.

By using small engravings I have accentuated body contours and lines. I have added a .925 hallmark on the back. Attaching the chain on the hands was not such a good idea, because then the ballerina would carry too much a resemblance of the Christ figure. So instead, I have added a loop in the center on the back and balanced the pendant.
