Rustic Pendant

Playing with low melt solder and impressing images into molten solder. Wanted to see how it took color and how if it could be drilled, punched and hammered on.  I added a little cab bezel with low melt solder to see how well it would hold. So far, so good. After I was done with testing, I had this piece so I added a few eyelets for a chain and made it into a necklace.

The reason for the bow is because I punched in the wrong spot. While I like asymmetrical, an off center dangle just looks weird. So I had to add another hole. Two dangles wasn’t cutting it either. I tried a few other options, nothing that worked. I added the mother of pearl button to the chain later and I think it helped to pull the piece together.
