I made this mandala pendant from sterling silver sheet using traditional silversmith techniques.
I textured a piece of 1mm silver sheet in my rolling mill. I then cut out the mandala shape with my piercing saw and drilled a hole at the top. After filing and sanding, I soldered a bezel to the centre of the mandala and a jump ring in the hole I had drilled. I then pickled (a process for removing oxidised surfaces and flux from metal after soldering) and polished the pendant. When I had finished polishing, I set the amethyst cabochon.
This pendant is hung from a sparkly 16" sterling silver oval diamond cut belcher chain and is fastened with a handmade sterling silver s-hook.
Once all that was done, the pendant was sent to London to be assayed and fully hallmarked at The Goldsmiths' Company Assay Office.
The pendant is approximately 3 cm in diameter.
This mandala pendant will come packaged in a high-quality black box with my logo embossed in silver.
I enjoy making crochet mandalas so thought I would make a mandala necklace. A mandala is supposed to represent the universe and they are often used for focusing attention in meditation.
I combined this mandala pattern with amethyst - as it is considered to be a meditative and calming stone. It is also the birthstone for February.
