I wanted this piece to have an old world look and feel to it, like someone dug it up from the earth. I also wanted this cross to look like it was made from hatchet blades. I'm pretty happy with the end results. Made from sterling silver sheet and gallery wire. The metal is textured and darkened with a soultion of liver of sulfur. This labradorite cabochon has gorgeous flash of colors depending on the light and movement of the piece. Does NOT come with the popcorn chain featured in photos. The price is just for the pendant.
