Hippo Ivory Pendant

Juan Cronje

Recommended Posts

A hippo ivory pendant I finished recently.

The photo's was taken with a cellphone before blessing a friend with the pendant.

The cord used was hemp twine, platted in various ways along the rope. Not in the photos is the rope finished in beeswax.

Fully hand carved with mostly a figure saw, diamond files and finished to 1200 grit sanding paper.

Roughly a month and a half long project in the evening and spare time.

Roughly 80mm x40mm x8mm

Hi Juan,


Nice pendant, like the lines and the general design.

About the hemp, did you already used it before, 'coz I got some of it but I'm always wondering about how it's going to age. Well I know that thick hemp last very long, but I have no exprience with small section.

And apparently you did offer the pendant already, but if you can post a picture from the side or the back....;)

Thank's for sharing


Take Care
