    Such beautiful detail in this mini pendant! love the mixed metals. The brass rivets and moving gear, which evoke industry, contrast nicely with the delicate and intricately carved silver waves. This looks great from every angle, and the kinetic nature of it is fun. I chose the standard 18" chain, which is perfect. I have included a photo so show scale. I have my eye on some other pieces and will be back!

    Jeff was terrific, too. He immediately responded when I realized I had provided the wrong shipping address. He assured me he would make the correction, and the pendant arrived far ahead of schedule, too.

About

Armét Canada, Affordable Goods From Master Craftspeople

Armét Canada is where you can find accessible products from creatives who usually spend their time building large-scale public art, handmade cat armour, extravagant industrial lamps, and other masterpieces we all wish we could have. For now, we have our first commercial concept which you can see and purchase here. In the future, we will be adding other concepts dreamed up by members of LEXM, or the League of Extraordinary Makers. These are creators whose work usually sell for thousands, but through derivatives has been made much more accessible here.

Armét was founded by Jeff de Boer: known internationally for producing some of the most unique and finely crafted sculpture in the world. This ranges from the very small, such as suits of armour for cats and mice, to the very large, such as public sculptures.

Jeff and the other members of LEXM have all noticed one thing: as the value of their work has risen, fewer and fewer people can afford it, but we can never have enough art in the world. Armét is the storefront for commercial, derivative products created by LEXM members. Providing a way for the masses to afford artwork that is otherwise restricted to the few.
