Yep, it's my first go at sawing, finishing, and riveting metal! Right now, it's just a pendant kind of thing, but I'm guessing I'll eventually turn it into a necklace. It's about the height of a quarter and a dime next to each other, and it's made of copper and brass. Constructive crit is welcome, as this is my first go at anything like this and I'm sure I could use improvement!

Yay for mythology!

Great job! I don't know much about metal work, but that's some amazing detail in such a tiny space!

That is one piece of beautiful work! I can`t imagine how hard or how exciting that would be! I really love the brasswork, it really adds an etheric and mechnical dimension!
