Each item begins as a piece of bronze sheet metal. After a pattern is transferred to the metal, the piece is etched in a salt-water solution. Each piece is hand cut, sanded, and polished. A patina has been applied giving the metal that aged look. A clear polymer coating is applied to the face of the shield pendant. The pendant hangs on a waxed cord necklace.
