Punched and etched silver pendant

This pendant was made in the same way as the earrings, although the square of fine silver used was about 3mm thick. I wanted a heavy 25mm pendant which would hang well.

As for the earrings, the square was slightly domed after punching. A loop was soldered to the back of the pendant before protecting with black lacquer. After etching in ferric nitrate the pendant was burnished to highlight the contrast between silver/etched portions.

The pendant was then suspended on a silver snake chain from Cooksons.
