The pendant in the photograph is an example of the type, the one you receive may vary as each is hand-made. This beautiful hand-forged copper pendant is inspired by the spirals found in nature, particularly in the shell of an ammonite. The pendant is hand forged from copper using traditional blacksmithing techniques and detail is added using hand-forged tools. This ensures the unique, one-of-a-kind appearance of each of my pieces. The pendant is hung on a black leather cord and fastens with a hand-made copper clasp. The piece is left with the finish from the forging process, giving it a redding hue. It will patina over time and if worn next to bare skin it might transfer a little green. A coating of clear nail polish will prevent the formation of a patina and prevent any green skin. This piece is about 1.5 inches in diameter, the second photo shows it on a business card to give you an idea of scale. It's suitable for both men and women. I can make the pendants without the cord to order, I need to know how large you'd like the finished piece to be and if you have a preferred spiral direction.
