Science is beautiful – and now you can wear proof of that around your neck!   This pendant features a stunning image of light reflected off soap-film in a silver-plated, lead and nickel free pendant bezel – and it glows in the dark!

Light reflecting of the front and back of soap film (the same stuff you use to blow bubbles) combines together through a process known as interference to produce vibrant colours – the patterns and shapes you see are caused by tiny variations in the thickness of the film.

I see a figure swimming on its back – what do you see?

I take photos of the soap film, and I then print them on clear plastic backed with 'liquid mirror' to give it a shiny, vibrant finish.  The results are placed into the pendant bezel and covered with an epoxy resin.  A glow-in-the-dark resin is layered behind the image, so it can be 'charged' with normal or UV light to give it a long-lasting glow.

The pendant is approximately 2cm by 4cm (1.25 by 1.75 inches). The pendant will be shipped with a velveteen or satin bag and a  45cm (18 inch) silver-plated brass chain.  Let me know if you'd like a 60cm (24 inch) chain instead.

I can also make earrings that match this design - if you'd like a pendant and earring set at a discount, message me and we'll sort out the details.   Also message me f you'd like a different size or another variant of this pendant - I like doing custom work.

Please note that the pendant is water resistant but not waterproof. Remove before swimming or showering.

I want you to be totally thrilled with your pendant - if you aren't, let me know within 2 weeks and I'd be happy to arrange a refund, and pay for the return shipping.
