A sterling silver tally mark, made in a "five-bar gate" formation. I've soldered the four downward strikes to their diagonal fifth mark of square sterling silver wire and formed a double bale on the back. The pendant measures about 3/4 inch square (20mm). I've suspended the tally from a simple chain, which is 18 inches, and includes a handmade clasp. This silver tally mark totals 5! Wouldn't it be fun to wear to a bridge or bunco game?

"Tally marks are an implementation of the unary numeral system. They are a form of numeral used for counting. They allow updating written intermediate results without erasing or discarding anything written down." Wikipedia

Please note that your pendant may vary slightly in line placement as each one is handmade, and made to order. If you would like more than one of these pendants on the chain, please contact me!

Also, please see my shop for the matching earrings (then you'll have 15!) https://www.etsy.com/listing/50476888/
