If you are around my age, or older, do you remember one of the Teacher’s classroom chores being that you need to take the chalkboard erasers outside to bang them out and rid them of chalk dust?

This was my favorite chore! We got to bang the erasers on the back of the school, and it felt like giant sponge art on an open brick canvas.

When I saw this raw edge slate with natural cubes of pyrite, my mind immediately went back to elementary school, and that big beautiful, but now relic of a chalkboard.

These Classroom Treasures, as I am fondly calling them, are about 0.5 inches in diameter. They have been wrapped in fine silver and backed on sterling, with sterling posts. Then oxidized using a natural method producing deep smokey colors. They then are finished with a sterling pair of comfort push backs.

Using recycled silver, as always.

Thanks for your interest in my work!
