This bad boy was a custom job commissioned by the lovely pookzilla. Its the Geist logo (http://forums.white-wolf.com/cs/forums/26.aspx - the game is set to release August 2009). The pendant is hand cut from 20 gauge sterling silver and is composed of an upper and lower component that have been sweat soldered together. After soldering, it was hand polished, the background patinad with liver of sulfur, hand polished again, and then finally put through the tumbler. The pendant measures about 1.6″ in height.

I used my new torch for this - a propane torch with fat boy - the pendant was red hot in all of 30 seconds. Im suitably impressed - much, much more efficient than my little butane torch! I can only imagine how efficient I'll be when I finally get my acetylene torch!

Im gonna pat myself on the back here and say Im pretty proud of myself. I didnt think I could manage some of the details with my hand saw, the key in particular, but I did it. Go me!



There are more pictures on my blog for those interested Smiley

Wow, that's amazing!  I admit to dabbling in beading/jewelry, but I don't think I could ever do something like that.  Great job!

Its a sterling silver bombata chain (I've also heard it referred to as a ball cap chain, though I can't find any reference of that from my suppliers). Not sure if its what the pendant will hang on in the end, but it sure looked pretty for the photos Wink
Its a neat sort of chain, its almost a bit stretchy because of the way the links are made.
