Twisted Fleur de Lis Pendant, hand hammered stainless steel

Due to numerous requests, a smaller version of the twisted fleur de lis pendant has just been introduced. Both ladies and gentlemen enjoy wearing this this pendant.

The fleur de lis has long been a symbol of French heritage of Louisiana and New Orleans and in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, this symbol has also come to represent the rebirth of the area. You now have a chance to own or give a unique piece of stainless steel jewelry. A certificate of authenticity is included.

Stainless steel Fleur de lis Pendant, 1-5/8" tall x 1-3/8" wide x 1/8" thick. This fleur de lis can also be used on a key chain. Please specify that you would like it as a key ring and it will come with a split ring instead of a cord.


This stainless steel fleur de lis pendant was hand hammered on an anvil in Denver, CO. The hammering has created a subtle texture unlike that found on mass produced items. This high quality pendant with a polished stainless steel finish should last many lifetimes. The stainless steel has a natural finish and there is no plating to wear off. The fleur de lis pendant includes an 18" twisted cord. Please inquire if you prefer a 24" black leather cord which can be substituted if available.

Optional cords and chains can be ordered on the Johndiron ETSY site. Please inquire about other chains and cords.


Hurricane Katrina devastated much of John's hometown and this prompted him to created and sell several fleur de lis sculptures to raise funds for high school classmates that were storm victims. The fund raising efforts are now limited to the donation of pieces to charities to sell in auctions. This pendant is a scaled down version of the fleur de lis used in those sculptures and even shares the twisted petals which represents the rotational force of hurricanes and the state of the region after the storm. These sculptures can be viewed at:
