Knights Templar

I custom designed the original pendant based on images from history depicting the “Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon” otherwise known as the Knights Templar; their mascot being that of a single horse carrying two knights. From there I created the mold from RTV silicon and cast the molten metal. Note that the reverse side is flat metal with no design.

I deliberately made this to appear as if it was a piece that had been made hundreds of years ago, and as such it isn’t what you might call a “perfect” item made in the thousands in some country employing workers being paid a dollar a day!

Made in Canada by myself using a mold made from my own design with “jewellers’ grade” pewter (small amount of silver, no lead, US manufactured). Stainless steel bail that will definitely not come apart accidentally.

Measures 3cms (1 3/16″) in diameter. Comes with long black leather necklace with simple tie closure that can be easily shortened or removed.

Direct link to item in my Etsy store. – US$30

Variety of Argentium Silver Rings

Variety of Argentium Silver Rings

Just posting a variety of different sizes and styles of Argentium Silver rings available in my Etsy shop. All range in price from US$23 to $30.

Argentium Silver is a wonderful silver that is far superior to Sterling Silver and with more strength than Pure Silver. It is extremely tarnish resistant and is the only sort of silver I will buy in a chain any more; have you ever had to clean a sterling silver chain?

Egyptian Ankh Pendant in Pewter

Egyptian Ankh Pendant in Pewter

My Egyptian Ankh pendant continues to be fairly popular when 3D printed in various materials. Now, it is available in hand cast pewter. The look of silver at a fraction of the price.

Based on the classic Egyptian symbol with my own twist on surface design.

Comes complete with a long black leather cord secured with a split ring so it won’t come open like jump rings can. It will fit over anyone’s head without having to be undone. The cord is easily shortened, or if you wish, you could remove the cord and replace it with a chain of your own.

This pendant was created from my own mold which in turn was made from my own model. I make one at a time, not dozens like some do using the spin-casting method. There is a considerable amount of hand finishing required and as such no two will ever be exactly alike. I use jewellery grade pewter which contains a small amount of silver but no lead or nickel.

Available from my Etsy store for US$15, HERE.

Argentium Silver Ring, Brushed, US Size 5.5

Recently completed another Argentium Silver band, this one with a lightly brushed texture. US size 5.5 is available on Etsy HERE.

From Wikipedia:

Argentium Sterling silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium.[1] As it contains at least 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver.

High tarnish resistance……Tarnish resistance is of significant importance to both silver workers and the wearer of silver jewellery.
