These are all hand hammered /hand wrought from both the front and the back with the method described as silver chasing and repoussé.
This is a picture from the back side showing how the "raising up" looks. it is done by hammering on a soft surface such as lead or pitch from behind. Then they are re-hammered on the front to emphasize the features. These techniques are known as chasing and repoussé.
The smaller size pendants are about 1 & 1/2 inches long 1 & 1/8th inch at its widest point and the "regular" size is about 2 inches long and 1 & 3/4 inches at its widest point. Pendants do range in sizes and bolos are also available- see below.
Pendants are hand hammered, filed, and buffed. Paul's work shows the kind of attention to detail and fine craft work rarely found today. The Pendants come in several shapes, and use a variety of subjects, favorites are turtles, bears, beavers, double curves and hearts. These make great Valentine and anniversary presents or a great heirloom quality gift for any occasion. If you have a design, such as an animal in mind, Paul will not be able to do special orders.
