The Faravahar pendant; commissioned by my good friend & talented human Anna Hessami.
This is a Zoroastrian symbol, one of the world’s oldest religions. Anna commissioned 4 pendants for her family as well as modified version; a suit pin for her Father.
It was a pleasure to make these.
We discussed if she’d be happy to make it available to everyone and she said yes.
So the Faravahar pendant is up on my shop; it’s available with or without a chain, as well as the lapel pin option here
Check out the 'making of the Faravahar pendant' below
I start by carving the design twice the size in wax.
I then give this to @bjrdesigns to 3D scan and reduce in size.
Then file goes to @cooksongold where a cast is made in silver.
I clean it up, add the back hanging and this becomes the master.
A mould and casts are made.
The pendants are hallmarked @theassayoffice .
Everything is polished and I meet with Anna.
Few days later she sends me pictures and reports the family is chuffed to bits.
Thank you for looking!
