I love how you were able to get the  edges of the leaf to look so nice. Along with the drops it looks pretty much just like a fallen leaf that's just been alchemically turned to silver. The pendant it hangs off of itself supplies a lot to it as well I don't think many else would notice. Wonderful job 11 Batmans out of 10.

hehe - its the way the light shines on the surfaces. Even in viking times and before they loved granulation and similar techniques. Magnificent armour pieces you have btw. I think im to hasty to make large chunks of steel fit perfectly together :D

Ah! I just learned about granulation recently, I went to a museum in Boston and there was a display of ancient gold items from the middle east. Some of them were a little too busy for my tastes, but it was a beautiful effect nonetheless.

And thanks, there's going to be a lot more armour being made by the end of the winter! I've got 3 commissions coming up and I'm really excited about each one.

These drops are not made with the historical granulation technique - i plan to try it one day as i may need it to make some viking age replicas. What you said about gold - its true. I think most of them were made to show of as much wealth as possible. Staffordshire hoard is i think one of the few beautiful examples of goldsmithing with the intricate garnet encrusted knotwork patterns.

It's so beautiful! Are you thinking about selling it?

Hehei, as it was foremost a trial piece then no - but i could consider making a similar one that is even better. In case you are really interested let me know. The approximate price would be around 65 euros - depending slightly on how expensive the gem would be.

Ok, that's cool! 
I saw it, and immediately had to think about a friend of mine. 
It just fits her perfectly. But, a 65 euro gift is not something to give "just because it let me think of you"
Guess her boyfriend would get the wrong idea and kick me between the eyes xD

In addition to the pressure to the boyfriend for not finding gifts as nice :D Still there are perfect occasions - for me it is the best feeling as artisan when someone gets something that exactly matches his/her being.

It's true, and it fits her so perfectly!
She has white hair, with green in it. Loves nature, confessed she would live in the woods if it was possible.
Just every detail in the necklace fits her perfectly! 
But it's a lot of money (there will be a high shipping cost also I guess because I live in a different country), and I don't mean that much to her. 
So, I don't think it's a good idea to buy it for her.

Thanx! I appreciate it a lot. I have some sort of dwarfish desire to strive to perfection when it comes to crafting things and i feel as the journey has just begun.
