I recently was asked to create a piece that represented the word "hostile" to me and this is what I designed. The pendant is made from maple wood, sterling silver sheet , wire and chain. The frame has sterling silver dot inlays. The blade moves up and down and the neck support slides up. IThe guillotine pendant is suspended from a 15" sterling silver chain. This has become part of my personal collection but I 'm willing to make a reproduction on request.
