Dog Tag Pendant
This dog tag pendant started life in 1964 as a spendable, silver US half dollar. Through the years it has moved from hand to hand as currency; and eventually as silver began to grow in value, it moved to an investment piece. That is where I come in. I find these coins at coin shops and redeem them from a life of safety deposit box misery and turn them into jewelry you can wear!

This little Kunai knife is a really eye catching pendant! A kunai (苦無, kunai) is a Japanese tool thought to be originally derived from the masonry trowel. The two widely recognized variations of the kunai are short kunai (小苦無 shō-kunai) and the big kunai (大苦無 dai-kunai). Although a basic tool, in the hands of a martial arts expert, the kunai could be used as a multi-functional weapon. The kunai is commonly associated with the ninja, who used it to gouge holes in walls. Many popular manga characters use kunai as both their primary and secondary weapons. It measures just over 2 1/2 inches long by about 1/2 an inch wide. It is cast in solid sterling silver and is finished with a dark antique. Once finished, the edges of the blade is sanded back to silver to give it that cutting edge look and then finally the handle is wrapped with a white fabric. If you wanted a pendant that is unique and has a back story to it, this might be the pendant for you. These come with a nickel plated steel ball chain but can be upgraded to a heavier sterling silver ball chain.

This honey comb inspired pendant is custom made and one of a kind from start to finish!
To begin the process I went to southern Oregon and hard rock mined the fire opal from the ground myself. Then I faceted it into a 1.4 carat hexagon.
Once I had the completed stone I was able to design and then hand carve the wax pendant. Once finished shaping, I made a mold and burned the wax out so it could be replaced with 14k yellow gold.
With such a unique statement piece like this, I couldn’t just go buy a pre made chain so I made a 24” chain in house. I poured a 14k gold ingot and drew it into wire and then made all the links by hand. The S link clasp to close the chain I also hand made.
Now all it needs is a neck to adorn!

This 14k solid gold pinecone pendant was a passion piece for me. It started out as a normal pine cone that I stumbled across while backpacking. I was stunned by the perfection and symmetry in its shape and decided to take it along with me. Then it sat for about a year on my shelf as I looked at it and decided exactly what I wanted it to become. Finally, as I decided on its final design, I ordered VS diamonds in various sizes (it ended up being adorned with 28 VS-1 F-H color diamonds; 1-carat total weight). The end results are just brilliant. It has just enough flash and the spinning bale that hangs on the hand made 24″ 14k gold cable style chain was a perfect touch. Now I offer it up to head off to its new home!
It will be a special piece that stands the test of time no matter where it ends up. This piece also comes with an appraisal ($17,000) from Accurate Gem Labs Inc. In Portland, OR. I have been so grateful that I’ve been able to dedicate my time to bring beautiful things like this into the world. And extremely grateful for those who have supported that passion.
