Handmade Sterling Pendant
“Lily Pad” Texture Finish
This is a handmade deeply texture “Lily Pad” Sterling Pendant. It amazes me with each new design that I do what can be created from a simple sheet of metal and some basic tools. The artist breathes life into a boring sheet of metal. It starts it’s incredible journey from sheet to become this Sterling Pendant. This is a keepsake to be handed down. The story starts with the artist but continues on its own unique journey with you the customer. It is a very cool feeling to be part of that. Each piece is unique to itself the 1st time or the fifth time you make it. That is the beauty of handmade.
It all start with a sheet of Sterling about 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″. I take what is called a sharp raising hammer and textures the entire sheet. The sheet will warp from the movement of the metal. I will have to flatten the sheet in order to continue texturing the piece. Once it is texture I use a torch and heat it to a red glow to soften the metal. Using a circle punch I will cut a 1 1/4″ round disc. I drill a small hole for the pendant jumpring. Then I slightly texture with the hammer again this is to get a small warping and give it a random rising design. It is now ready for finishing.
Why buy from me?
Finishing this Sterling Pendant t is just as important as creating the piece. This is where some artist get in a hurry. They have spent their time creating and now they want to start on the next project. This is what sets my work apart from others there is no shortcuts. I do not get in a hurry at the end. I want to make sure the buyer has a smooth snag free keepsake jewelry. I use a buffing machine and I go through a 6 step of using different finishing brushes. Once I am satisfied with the finish I then let it tumble for 12 hours to help work hard and burnish the shine further.
Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!
