Personalized Men's Custom Name Necklace Hand Stamped Trashed Fine Silver Raw Dog Tag Men's Gift



Personalized, handcrafted and hand stamped men's fine silver necklace. Customize with any word, name, date or initials on this heavily textured and hammered masculine dog tag pendant, hanging from an oxidized 2mm sterling silver ball chain necklace. A modern piece with instant rustic, vintage appeal. Trashed in all the right ways.

This piece was made for my husband who does not wear jewelry. Because of his work he even doesn't wear his wedding ring often. But since opened this gift he has not taken it off! Jewelry a man can love.

How it's made:
Pure or fine precious silver is 99.9% pure, making it more desireable and more expensive that sterling silver. It starts as a clay that can be molded, stamped and textured in any way imagineable. I roll the clay and weigh it for a uniform size. 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 take the texture even furthur by using a variety of tools and techniques to give it a modern trashed look. I then let it dry, sand it to smoothness, and fire it in a kiln for 3 hours. Once fired, it is solid 99.9% pure silver and the finished size is approx 5/8" x 7/8" but each one will vary slightly. I then wire brush it, file and sand it some more and when I'm happy with the texture and after I've hand stamped your personalization, 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. This piece is attached to a 2mm sterling silver ball chain that has also been oxidized and hand sanded in some areas for a rustic look. Long process, Yes. But sooooo worth it!!
