I made this necklace for Pookzilla's birthday Smiley
It's hand cut from 20 gauge sterling silver, and measures about 1.25" across. Its hung on a 18" sterling chain.
Designing script is a major pain in my butt, but I'm really happy with the end result. And once again, my little ghetto tumbler did an awesome job of making it really shiny ^_^



I think I'll do a few more of these word pendants, they're pretty fun ^_^

UPDATE

I made another necklace in the same style for Nven who's birthday is today!

Frak

It is also handcut from sterling silver, and is on a 16" sterling chain with Swarovski crystal accents.

hehe can you tell she's a BSG fan? Cheesy

Well this is just fantastic.

I do love my inner geek but some people do need the reminder.
Thanks for sharing!

Awww, I totally love that pendant, and the word 'geek';  in college we sort of claimed it proudly as our own, smart, likes computers, and games, also likes to get out with friends and have fun...awesome!  That turned out so great, and she should wear it very proudly!  I know I would!

So the pendant is sterling silver? How pretty. I thought it was mirrored acrylic.  You did a wonderful job and they would probably be a very popular item on your site.  Grin

yup, its sterling. it has a bit of a bevel on the edges from polishing it and putting it  through the tumbler, so maybe the reflection cause by that makes it look like the mirrored acrylic?

thanks for all the nice comments, folks! Cheesy
