Product Description

This air chased silver pendant is approximately .75" wide and 1" long. Net weight of pendant about 6.3g.

The process of this technique begins with annealing (heating) a silver tube in order to soften it. After hammering the ends and clamping the tube to a table, I then use a dabbing punch set to create the craters and valleys in the metal. This processes work hardens the metal, and I will anneal it a number of times in order to soften the metal enough to continue shaping it. Once I've shaped the metal to my liking, I cut the tube into sections, then round out and smoothen the edges. I then soldered three silver balls into the valleys. The pendant has a liver of sulfur patina to bring out the contrast. After polishing the metal, I apply protective wax to reduce tarnishing. There is a silver jump ring for hanging onto a chain.

All of my jewelry can be made to order. If you would like any alternative materials or colors, please contact me and I will be happy to make it for you!
