Artisan Axe Toting Gnome/ Dwarf Pendant
**This listing is for one pendant only**
What is that you ask, why yes that is an axe toting gnome set off to do a long, grueling, hard day’s work, and not exactly singing the “Heigh Ho” song while swinging that axe. Don’t let the size deceive you, this little guy is working hard with the hot sun perched high up in the sky. He is a bit of a trickster as orneriness clearly reflects in his eyes. It’s all fun and games once that 5pm whistle blows.
These artisan handcrafted Gnome/ Dwarf pendants are made using my hydraulic press from a hob that was created from an original very old antique design. They possess amazing detail with a timeless, wonderfully eccentric design and unisex style. They are very well made and designed to last a life time with proper care. There is a whole lot of time, patience, skill and love that went into crafting these pieces. They are made one at a time and are not fast to make. Each one is a process of tedious work that is all done by human hands. The work includes sawing out the metal, annealing, pressing, soldering, filing, finishing the metalwork, and applying an antiqued patina. Each pendant is handcrafted using solid sterling silver. The ‘sun’ may vary in design as they are not all exactly identical, which is a good thing. The backplate has a wood grain pattern that charmingly compliments the overall motif/ design composition. The metalwork was given a soft brushed finish and a black oxidized patina for a beautiful antiqued look. I have used a professional jeweler grade wax sealer to help prevent air oxidation (tarnishing.) Although it is long lasting, it is not permanent. This pendant is very comfortable to wear all day long.
A few of the listing photos shows the pendant paired with two different necklaces which are not included in this listing. The necklaces are to give an idea as to how the pendant would look paired with such. This listing is for one pendant only.
My photography for this listing was taken both indoors and outdoors in the natural, indirect light. Colors do vary according to lighting, and in addition they will appear slightly different on monitors and devices depending on personal settings. The listing photos don’t do justice (:
