For today’s shop update, a throwback with a new twist!
As some of you may recall I used to make these large versions of my stainless steel capped, bullet-shaped pendants. I stopped for a few reasons, but the final reason being that when I re-made the mold master for them, I inadvertently made them slightly too fat to fit into the old stainless steel bead caps I used, and after months couldn’t find caps that would properly fit them.
Thus, the several that I made sat in storage on my shelf for a year or more, in limbo. That was until I did some workshop cleaning a few weeks ago, rediscovered this old stash of half finished pendants, and realized, in lieu of the stainless steel caps, I could at least finish them off with an improvised electroplated top, which is exactly what I did!
I have 12 new large bullet shaped electroplated pendants, featuring a wide variety of plants, including Christmas Fern fiddleheads, Canadian Serviceberry, Feverfew, Yarrow, Wormwood, Wild Carrot, Red Clover, Hyssop, Golden Alexander, and Buttercup.
Because these are over a year old, some of the vividness of the pigments in the plants has understandably faded to a warm, desaturated, antique hue, but the finish on the pendants is crystal clear.
Bear in mind, this may be the last time I ever make these pendants, so grab them if you like them!
The update will be at 3:30 EST today, Sunday February 28th!

Spring/summer is right around the corner so I am going to make a list of edible plants you can forage for in the Pacific Northwest and make seperate posts for different Parts of the country as well and a few countries outside of mine
I ordered some plants from a small california-based nursery. 100% recyclable packaging, and amazing prices, I’ll definitely be ordering from these guys again!
