I craft this striking pendant from a beautiful solid silver decorative vintage spoon. It features an ornate lotus blossom medallion design. The pendant measures 1.7 inches long, by 1.15 inches wide, by .25 inches deep.
The spoon was cast in Nagasaki, Japan. The word 'Nagasaki' is embossed on the back. It's made of a solid silver alloy (like sterling). The number 84 is also embossed on the back, suggesting an 84% silver content alloy (similar to sterling, 92.5% silver). You can read an informed discussion about the origins and material content of this type of vintage flatware in the Silver Forums here:
The pendant comes with a matching 18-inch long sterling silver chain.
The pendant and chain necklace will arrive packaged in an attractive jewelry gift box and bag, making a convenient, unique and presentable handmade gift.
The necklace perfectly matches Lost & Forged's Silver Serpent Dragon & Rat Zodiac Sculptural Vintage Spoon Ring, which I forge from the handles of the same type of spoons.
Within 2 days of your purchase, I will custom forge the pendant, and drop it off with the chain and gift packaging at the US Postal Service for shipping.
