Genre/Medium: specular hematite, stainless steel wire
About the work: This pendant is made from a glittering, rough-cut piece of specular hematite that is suspended by an orbit of fine stainless steel wire. A miniature version of the Psyche probe is strung on the orbit wire. I used a hardened steel washer for the orbit frame. I chose these materials because they have a high iron content like (16) Psyche is predicted to.
