On various journeys down to the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, we picked up and bought a few pieces of pebble sized (and larger) serpentine. Having stored them outside my workshop for a couple of years, I finally had a chance to start working on them before Christmas 2018.

I started these pendants by coring with diamond corers and shaping each piece with diamond burrs, files and wet and dry paper. I then hand polished the surface and the cored sections of each stone with 1200 grade wet and dry paper.

Once I had the desired rough shapes of each stone, these were placed in my stone tumbler for just over a week with an increasing fineness of polishing compound.

After the process of stone polishing, the serpentine was ‘burnished’ and each stone was hand polished with a lint-free cloth to give a mirror-like finish.

The pendants are assembled using natural 2 mm leather and tied using double slip-knots for an adjustable drop length.
