Here is a pendant I cut in nickel silver yesterday. I enjoy a variety of work as this blog shows and I hope it inspires others to try various forms of art in their lives. I like to believe a little art is everywhere in our lives and we just have to reach out and find it. I got his idea from another engraver and mixed some different elements he was using into a new combination. A lot of engraving in the traditional style like this is built on the work of others that engrave before you, sometimes centuries before you. I like to find good designs and then work with them to fit my own style. This particular flower shows up in many places including the grip cap on early black powder pistols from the 1700's. The pendant is about 1&1/2 inches in diameter and is available for purchase at Etsy. Thanks for looking and I hope the variety of my work inspires you to create!
