This piece is probably the least traditional of my sculptural representations of kinetic toys. The pendant is made completely from found objects, primarily scrap metal and collected debris from a jewelry studio. Originally intended to be a decoder necklace in the spirit of decoder rings made popular through 1930s’ sponsored radio programming, the work evolved to take the form of a conventional pendant. Although it is not what I set out to make, I am still very happy with the finished piece, which creates the same feeling of excitement had by many a youth when they found their prize in the bottom of a box of candied popcorn.
