I have a lot of small bits of metal. This pendant started as a irregular shaped bit of aluminum. I heated the aluminum to aluminum forging temperature and formed it with a texturing hammer. After I shaped the aluminum, I decorated it with some wire, both steel and copper. I felt like it needed a hand made chain so I made that as well. It is made up of hand forged scrolls and rings. This necklace turned out to be a bit of a labor of love. I like that at one time aluminum was considered more precious than gold and I like it as the centerpiece of this pendant.
I want to thank you for making the effort to find my work. I do appreciate it. All of my work is one of a kind and hand made.
