This lion will be hand made to order in the United Kingdom. Please allow me up to 30 days to complete it.

With this piece I have tried my hardest to present a very regal portrait of this majestic, king of the beasts. Worldly wise, hardened by life’s struggles and at the peak of its physical prowess.
The lion traditionally symbolises courage, nobility, royalty, strength, stateliness and valour.

The sterling silver lion measures 2.7cm, or a little over one inch wide. Without its solid silver chain it weighs approximately 24.6g (which is slightly under an ounce), and has eyes made from natural, cabochon-cut peridot gemstones.
The silver lion has been hung from a sturdy 22 inch long chain with a substantial clasp.
This pendant is supplied in its own gift box.

To create it I have utilized some of the most up-to-date technology alongside some of the oldest skills still used in jewellery and silversmithing. The original lion was hand carved from wax before being digitally resized. It was cast in solid sterling silver which was then reworked, for several hours, using traditional Goldsmiths' tools, to produce a very fine detail.
To emphasize the details of the carving, the silver lion was given an antique appearance by oxidising and then satin finishing the pendant. The whole piece was then coated with a layer of clear lacquer to help preserve the colouration.

Please allow up to 30 days for this piece to be made for you.
