The fall started with a commission for an iron age find from Finnmark. I made it with bronse like the original, but all i had to go on were notes made in the 1800’s and a photo so i could only be so accurate. The double stamp on the middle pendant is an intentional mistake that matches the original.
I thought this would be quick since its a solder-free piece, but the twisting of the wire and getting the proportions right took a good long while. Also i got to make new punches for the patterns. I like taking these odd jobs as they create opportunity for experimentation and learning from passed craftspeople like they are still around. I learn something new every time. If you are curious about the original, here is all the info i have: http://www.unimus.no/artefacts/khm/search/?oid=2302&museumsnr=C2078&f=html
