The Mythical and Magical Seahorse

This is a pendant I made in my recent jewellery class. It's made of copper (the state metal of Arizona), sawpierced, and has a backing plate with a verdigris area to give the saguaro some colour.

Both copper plates are sawed (sawn?) into the shape of Arizona state.

Comments appreciated!

Thank you! This was the first piece I did and I had literally been thinking about it for months, you know, how I would go about it, how I'd get the cactus to be green, that kind of thing. I'm glad you like it!

impressive Cheesy love the idea of it being the shape of the state, and that you used the state metal, and added the cactus Tongue pretty, simple and really interesting Cheesy
