CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This pendant is made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
A carving of Yaxchilan, a Maya archeological site in Mexico, is the inspiration that was used to make this pendant. This etching was inspired by a sculpture of walking 10, stairs 2 of the temple 33 sub. Of Yaxchilan. It represents a ballplayer that would be named Kan Tok Wayib. He is dressed as the Mayan Wind god, Huracan.
This pendant is really one of a kind. It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas-relief effect is really nice. The deeper part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished.
Etching is an artisanal process, which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
Polished, shiny finish.
Dimensions: 4.5 x 3.3 cm (1.772 x 1.299 inches)
