How it's made:

It starts as a bronze clay that can be molded, stamped and textured in any way imaginable. All materials are 100% eco-friendly and recycled metals. I roll the clay and weigh it for a uniform size. You will see that the finished piece is quite thick and substantial in weight giving it a beautiful wearable strength. I roll it and press and nautilus shell texture into the clay. I can now cut the textured pendant in the shape of a modern dog tag. No 2 pieces will ever be the same. It will be perfectly imperfect with raw edges and a rustic, old world feel with texture lines. I then let it dry, sand it to smoothness, and fire in a kiln for approx 9 hours. Once fired, it is solid, pure bronze. I then wire brush it, file and sand it some more. It's rustic appearance comes from a hand hammered texture I create with a texturing hammer in strategic places and when I'm happy with the texture I oxidize the piece to leave dark in the low areas and to highlight the high areas. Finally it goes in a tumbler for a final glimmering polish and to add extra strength. Long 2-3 day process, Yes. But sooooo worth it!!


All items will arrive wrapped and ready for gift giving in a reusable cotton hand stamped drawstring bag.
