Closeups from my new favourite necklace. Chain is made from about 5 meters of 1 mm bronze wire and few thicker silver links as well.

You find more info also from my "mixed metals jewelry 5" picture. [link]

Thanks for the fave.
It have turned more darker in nowadays because of the patina, but I kinda like that deep contrast between brown tones and shining silver details. :)

I'm sure it still looks fantastic!

That looks fantastic! Do you sell anywhere in Europe or only locally? Mainly interested in the pendant.
Astalo's avatar
Thanks for the offer, but I don't make any business to outside Finland. This particular piece is also very difficult to make, so i can't consider making copies even for local markets.

Wow! So beautiful!! 

You should consider shipping your creations :)

Nice to hear it and thanks for the fave and watch. :)

I don't sell pieces like this even in Finland. (My commercial jewelry works are usually much more simpler than my personal projects..)

No problem that is truly a work of art.
I only wish that you could make one for me!

Thanks again for the fave and compliments. I have new stuff coming probably in 1-2 weeks and also few new mjolnir pendants.

Your welcome, I always admire your metal work. I look forward to seeing what you're currently working on.

really great... I love the two different types of metal... :)

Thanks for adding it to your favourites.
I have a lot of new "mixed metal" projects coming also this year. :)
VulpesLudens's avatar
cool!

can you give a hint what kind of projects?
Astalo's avatar
Mainly some brass, copper & silver mixes just like in my earlier pendant sets. In this spring I'm going to make probably more steampunk style pieces than usually, because they selled the fastest in last years fairs.

I really like steampunk things, but truly i prefer the more medieval looking stuff... that's why i love this mjölnir. :)
Astalo's avatar
I have planned also some viking & steampunk mixes, like mjölnirs from old watch parts. :XD:

Maybe also some decorative patterns taken from Finnish iron age jewelry finds attached to larger brass gears, kind like this earlier brooch set. [link]
Gears make great frames for pendants and then i just try to cut different silver plate details in the middle.

I would buy one too. You are not selling it, are you? Nice job. :)
Astalo's avatar
No. I don't really have any business to outside Finland.
This particular necklace is also very time consuming to make, so i can't consider making copies even for local markets.

It's totally different case if i want to make something only for personal use, because then i don't have to think contribution margins and things like that..

I see, thank you so much for your time!
