This is the perfect gift for the man who loves the sea and especially deep sea fishing. This is an impressive, heavy pendant. I made it large scale with a man in mind, but lots of women love it too.
This listing is for the PENDANT ONLY.
Otodus Obliquus, or the Giant Mackerel Shark is thought to be the ancestor of the Megalodon, the largest shark that ever lived. It became extinct around forty five million years ago and I was thrilled when I found a collector with a gorgeous fossilized tooth of the Mackerel Shark from which I was able to cast this pendant , (fourth photo).
The listing is for the pendant alone, however I have photographed it on a sterling chain and on a leather necklace. You can see and purchase these and more in my "design your own" section", here:
The impressive tooth was cast with its fossilized matrix attached and measures more than 1.5" long, (45mm). The solid, heavy, chunky pendant is about 8mm thick at the center. On the rear of the pendant I have patterned a faint "barnacle" pattern that the giant shark may have had himself.
The aged patina of the tooth pendant is deliberate, After the design is cast in fine silver, I treat it with a patina that sinks into the recesses to create depth and show the natural detail of the tooth. Then I tumble it for strength, hand burnish, polish and wax it.
The result is the one of a kind, aged appearance of a modern heirloom, made to last lifetimes.
Fine silver is more pure than sterling, and more costly, (99.9% pure compared to 92.5% pure). This eco-friendly pendant is meticulously made from 100% recycled fine silver, with zero negative environmental impact from mining or toxins.
