The sterling silver pendant was lovingly created entirely by hand, using an ancient technique called chasing and repousse. This 5000 year old technique uses small, specialized tools and a hammer to push and form the metal, either from the front of the piece or from behind. This is a time-intensive, meditative technique, which produces a unique result. On the back of the pendant there is an image of a butterfly.
The pendant comes on a sterling silver 18-inch figure-8 chain with a lobster clasp (shown in first image). The pendant is 1-1/2 inches long.
