So, I love the spiral form of the trilobyte/ammonite/nautilus creatures.  They represent a sort of epitome of the golden mean to me.  I love the form; I love getting lost in the form.  I made this pendant yesterday using 24K gold as the colorant and used glass to trap the color onto the surface of a glass bubble that I blew at the end of a tube.  As I melt the glass down into a flat thick disc the gold moves into the pendant and becomes dimensional.  It takes a fair amount of control and lots of practice to make this happen with any degree of precision.  This one came out pretty good.
