I'm So Excited!!!

I have been wanting to make something like this for quite some time. I've finally gotten the tools and the instruction and I can't wait to make more.

These pendants are made from airplane grade aluminum. A friend of mine built his own plane out of this stuff and has a large sheet still in his garage. It is heavy duty! I cut and shaped the strips, then hand stamped the words onto the strips. The top of the pendant is simply curled around the cord necklace.

The larger pendants can be customized with a word or name of your choice.



You can see more pictures of these pendants and my online shop here.
