Bonsai Tree Pendant

This pendant is crafted from brass using both hand-chased and reverse roll printed techniques. The shapes were then cut out, filed, and formed before being oxidized with liver of sulfur. Finally, the pieces were cold-joined using hand-formed rivets that have organically-shaped decorative heads that blend into the branches and roots.
