First thing to deal with today is bricking up the back of the above garnet door pendant. The front of the pendant has a square faceted garnet stone as a window. The front is sufficiently finish so that I am able to temporarily set the stone to see what it looks like. So far, it is a bit more impressive than I had first imagined. (This was to be a 'giblet' side project to accompany a larger project at casting time.)
To achieve non-giblet, stand-alone-as-legitimate-work status, a piece must have an accompanying story, or at least a snippet of a story. The story kinda goes:
"Retracing his step backwards, Dr. Bard slowly retreated from the mysterious and impossible inner world, and out the garnet door. After shutting the door, he once again walked around to the back of the structure, only to be greeted with a solid brick wall.
" 'What sort of trickery could this be?', he exclaimed."
Our Dr. Bard is frozen in time and space, having retreated from the inner world, and started his circumnavigation around the pendant, only to come face-to-face with an even scarier fate; the brick wall, his appointment with the back of the pendant, his world, has not yet been completed.
It's off to save Dr. Bard from non-existence.
