Embedding a piece of rock from Mecca

This was a very special project and I’m always open to being asked to do something different.  Once a year, Muslims of every ethnic group, colour, social status, and culture gather together in Mecca and stand before the Kaaba praising Allah together.  I was asked to embed a piece of rock collected on one woman’s pilgrimage within a special pendant to be worn and kept close. The white rock is embedded within the transparent and gold metallic flakes layer.  The final pendant piece is a solid cube shape and the colours gold and black, both of which are inspired by the Kaaba.
