This Sperm whale was created using the gorgeous illustrations from the enigmatic Charles Melville Scammon in the mid 1800s.

Born in Pittston, Maine in 1825, he is a study in contrasts. Known for both his landmark book on the ocean life of the Pacific Northwest and for the wholesale slaughter of the Gray Whale.
 
His story fascinates me and finding these gorgeous illustrations inspired me to use them as the basis for some new whale jewelry.

The whale has been riveted two tabs of tin to create hidden holds for the 1mm 16” long stainless steel chain. The chain has a lobster clasp and a 2” extension chain  

The finished pendant is approximately 2.25" (54mm) wide and .625" (14mm) tall.

Each piece of metal comes to me having lived a previous life--in some cases multiple lives! It is not unusual for the material to sometimes have scuffs, scratches, faded portions, and general wear and tear. If a flawless finish is important to you, please zoom in to the pictures here to look for imperfections that might be distracting for you.

All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.

Please contact me if you have any other questions.
