St Christopher pendant

$195.00
metalrecycled sterling silver MADE TO ORDER

Handmade in the Otways

Description

This pendant was cast from a 1960s English made St Christoper medal.  The original piece was made from "pot metal", a term used to describe non-precious and non-iron containing metals that came from scraps thrown into the "pot".  They were then later melted down to be cast into objects for the motoring industry some 100+ years ago.  Pot metal isn't something you want to wear on your skin, so having a mould made and casting this piece in precious metal gives it a new life, allowing people who can wear sterling silver or 9ct gold to wear it against their skin.

The piece was cast in Melbourne using the lost wax method and hand finished in my Otway forest studio.  This medal is large, has a fabulous weight to it and has gorgeous detail retained from the original piece. 

Materials: recycled sterling silver or recycled 9ct yellow gold.

This piece is made to order and ships in approx 3 weeks.

Measurement: 3cm wide, 2.5cm tall, excluding the jump ring.

This listing is for the pendant medal ONLY.  If you order this piece you will not receive a chain unless you add one to your cart.  

Hand finished in Betsy Blonde's Otway forest based studio on Gadubanud Country.
