Artist John Paul Miller demonstrates a mastery of metalworking techniques in this snail pendant brooch. Miller often used a technique he rediscovered in the early 1950s whereby gold granulation was applied to the surface to decorate the snail’s body and antennae, while multicolored enameling enlivens its shell.
