Color Me Stylish

A bright tribute to all things colorful and creative, this beautifully crafted necklace was made using an ancient metalworking technique. Artist Christine Schmidt etches tiny crevices in the gilded 22k pendant. The crevices are then filled with a richly pigmented paste which, once fired in the kiln, transforms into deep hues of hard enamel. The result is a charming color wheel that hangs from a long, delicate chain—perfect for art enthusiasts and color lovers alike. Made in San Francisco.

“I make things that I want. I have an idea and I figure out how to make it.”

Christine Schmidt's art career began in primary school when she won a bike in the local grocer's coloring contest (it was red and had ten whole speeds!) After a youth spent on the plains of Kansas City and art school in Washington D.C., she and her boyfriend, Evan, moved west to a little place perched atop windy Bernal Hill in San Francisco. Fueled by too much black tea and public radio shows, she spent nights creating hand-printed cards and gifts. Seeking out local suppliers and working with fine, earth-loving materials, she began honing her line of wares. In 2007, after steeling her nerves, Christine took a box of her goods to some local stores...they placed orders, and Yellow Owl Workshop was born.

Christine's workshop now bustles with a team of hard-working ladies in a sunny Mission district studio. Though it's grown, the workshop's original values of attention to detail, ecological awareness, and premium, American-made materials are evident in every product.

I display it from my bedroom lamp for a touch of color, and will wear also it whenever I want to. I think I would have liked it better if it had a circular link at one end of the pendant, so I could wear it with a nicer gold chain that was the right length for my neck. I don't particularly like the way the too-long chain is looped around the pendant, so it's not as wearable as I want it to be. I do like the vibrant colors in the pendant.

I really like this little charm. It's whimsical and colorful without being too garish or loud. However it seems like no matter which way I put it on over my head, it won't seem to lay flat again my body with the pretty side facing out. I love the design of it and how the chain is looped around the charm, but I wish it had a more traditional setup so it would lay flat. If it had the design on both sides it would be fine, but no matter how I put it on it always seems to be wrong-side out! Very strange. But it's so cute I'm going to keep it.

Comments about UncommonGoods Color Wheel Pendant:

I'll need to find a longer chain that I can slipknot in order to wear this. Because of the way the chain is attached to the charm without hardware, you lose about a half inch. For me, that means the difference between pendant and choker and it's not as comfortable as I would have liked. I do want to wear it so I will hit up my crafter friends for a longer chain so it rests on my collarbone better.

      I have to order another one, because when it came in, I put it in a very safe place until I was ready to wrap it.......so safe, that I never found it and was unable to give it to her. So I am now placing another order so I can give it to her.
