designoptions :: shield series pendants

inspired by the mother country: africa! ward of evil spirits with my mini shield pendants! i fabricate my own dies and press the copper sheets into the shield shaped forms with my 20 ton hydraulic press. after enameling each piece with brilliant colors, i set them into a custom oxidized sterling silver bezel setting. each 1.5" x .5" x .5" mini shield hangs from an adjustable 16"-18" oxidized sterling snake chain with a sterling clasp i made to mimic each shield's individual design.
