The pendant itself is 1-1/2" wide.
This unique sculptural piece has a nice solid feel. It tells a different story on each side and is reversable.
I would be happy to alter the length for you.
Another name for this necklace could be The Potato Patch, which is the turbulent area of water outside the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It was given the name after a barge loaded with potatoes was sunk there. There's even the suggestion of a bridge in the piece. In about 1976 that stretch of water could have been renamed the Plywood Patch when a barge broke loose from it's tugboat and lost it's load of plywood and other lumber. Many of the local waterfront scavengers headed out to gather the bounty.
This necklace would work well as a companion piece to my Breaking Wave Earrings: http://www.etsy.com/listing/66012560/breaking-wave-earrings
