    Quick arrival, absolutely beautiful details and just the right weight. This pendant is solid and makes me feel like I'm ready to step into the past and begin my own saga!

    These coins are awesome! Definitely a high quality coin with a nice weight to it for the size. The coins were even better than I had hoped! I'm definitely gonna be on the lookout for more of these in the future!

    Superb quality! I upgraded to Argentium silver for both the ring and pendant. Considering these were custom made, they were crafted and shipped incredibly quickly. The ring size is spot on and I love wearing them already. A+ and I will definitely be buying from this shop again!

    The timeframe from purchase to getting it was quicker than expected. The quality of the arm ring is excellent. Sturdy and looks good for a male. Not too flashy or anything. I wish that it fit better. I gave the measurements for my wrist and it seems to me like the gap is a little too wide, BUT it does still fit and work. I actually bought it to wear on occasion and have had no issues with it. All in all if you are looking for a sturdy arm ring to wear on special occasions or everyday as a male this one is great. I've owned 2 arm rings and have come to appreciate these more solid cast ones. Made to last.

About HopkinsForge

Sales 784
On Etsy since 2013

Hand Forged Knives & Jewelry

I first started forging knives in 1990 on an antique coal forge. In 1995 my daughter was born and that put an end to my forging.
In 2011 I dusted off my anvil and started forging again. I've been attending classes at the New England School of Metalwork a few times a year since then, which has greatly increased my knowledge and skill.
My jewelry is an extension of my bladesmithing. I started taking classes in casting and basic jewelry skills so I could make better fittings. As I worked I started getting ideas for pieces of jewelry, and before I knew it I was selling them here on Etsy.
I mostly make historical european pieces. I tend to focus on 'dark ages' pieces, but I also venture into high medieval work on occasion. I do take commissions, so feel free to contact me if there is something special you'd like.
