Stag Necklace

I made this necklace using traditional silversmithing methods. I used a jewelers saw to hand cut the stag head out of a sheet of sterling silver, and then soldered it to another sheet silver to give a layered look.

I oxidized/darkened the pendant, and then brought out the top layer to a shiny brushed polish finish, while leaving the back piece with a slightly greyed and roughened silver effect, so that the design stands out.

The pendant measures 0.9 inch (2.5cm) tall, and 0.4 inch (1.1cm) across. It hangs on an 18 inch sterling silver chain.

On the reverse of the pendant there is my makers mark and the sterling silver '925'.

Will arrive nicely presented in a gift box.
