Snake Venom Pendant with Quartz Druzy in Sterling Silver
I put my hydraulic press to use again to create this amazing, detailed coiled snake medallion. It was made with brute force by pressing 22 gauge sterling silver sheet against a steel die, over and over (omg so many times) to get a good impression. This was a very difficult die to work with! He is soldered to a backing of 22 gauge sterling silver sheet. Iveset a sparkly quartz druzy above the medallion, and added a tube bail. Suspended from a 18" bright sterling silver chain. The pendant has been oxidized in liver of sulphur and polished to bring out the highlights of the silver.
