Comedy Tragedy Necklace, Bronze or Sterling Silver Theater Masks
The agony and the ecstasy! These masks were cast from vintage charms in solid nickel-free bronze using lost-wax casting. I start with a wax model created from my own mold, and then a plaster mold is made from the wax. I added two holes on each mask to attach chain. Liquid metal is poured into the mold and heated in a kiln to create the final product, which is then tumbled, tumbled, and tumbled again, and polished to bring out the shine. Please allow 10-14 days for casting in bronze or sterling silver.
The two masks associated with drama represent the traditional generic division between comedy and tragedy. They are symbols of the ancient Greek Muses, Thalia and Melpomene. Thalia was the Muse of comedy (the laughing face), while Melpomene was the Muse of tragedy (the weeping face). Wonderful for theater/film people, actors, directors, mask enthusiasts, or anyone who loves these iconic symbols.
The necklace measures 18" long, but chain can be adjusted upon purchase. Antique brass chain and lobster clasp are secure as well as lead and nickel-free.
