36 Hour Turnaround!

This piece was entirely hand crafted! It's made up of 5 different components:  a back piece that was sawed out of silver sheet by hand, two front pieces made of copper, also sawed out by hand, an 'apple stem' made from silver wire, and stained black with a hydrochloric acid solution, and a back plate for the 'seed' in the center of the pendant, so that the recessed crevice could be painted dark black with antiquing.  The entire piece measures 3 inches in height, and 2 1/4 inches in width.

That is wonderful. ALso since I've only seen prices on the common round pendents, dog tags, and similar how much does fancy pendants like this cost? (I'm sure it's a huge range, I'd just like an idea) I'm just curious more than anything. Anyway, your work is still awesome!

If it's marked "One of a Kind" like this one, they don't have a price.

Okay. What about some of the other shaped ones that aren't marked one of a kind. Like some of the faces and stuff. I don't think I've managed to see those in store.

Some are discontinued, and should be marked as such.  All other hand crafted pieces were temporarily removed from my shop while I prepare for the Nightmare Nights convention.  My shops closed now, but it'll be opened up again, with everything up for sale again, on the 28th.

Oh, this is awesome. I love the placement of each Apple family member silhouette around the apple core, you did a good job of this. :)

Even after several years MLP-fans are still impressing me with their fan works.

This is a beautiful piece, and I envy the person who ultimately receives it.  It is a bit large for my tastes, but the design is just excellent.

Fantastic work on the detailed character outlines. Their poses are terrific, with the youngest two shining with happiness while the eldest two stand with honor and determination. The full design is great, and the apple must have been very delicious to have so many bites "with character" to them. (Hmm, could it be...?) The stem really does add an awesome touch of realism to the rest of the piece. It's a great tribute to the Apple family.
