Punched and oxidised round pendant

A round punch was used to mark circles on 2x25mm discs using 1mm sterling silver. Each disc was then domed and and a small V marked on opposite edges of one domes. The two domes were then soldered to each other to form a lentil shape. The small V was then drilled out to a hole sufficient to take a 1.5 mm wire.

The lentil was pickled before being oxidised using liver of sulphur. Excess oxidation was removed using a dremel felt and finally the pendant was burnished to bring out the highlights in the silver texture.

The pendant was hung on 1.5mm silver wire which had been heated to form a blob at one end. The other end was then bent into a loop and hung from a 1.6mm silver snake chain from Cooksons.
