Silver Claw Necklace

This claw necklace is made from a 60 millimeter river crayfish claw pendant cast in solid sterling silver. The pendant hangs on a custom length faceted anchor chain. The necklace has a light matte finish.

Each piece is made to order by hand and the claws are made using the ancient art of sand casting. A negative of the claw is created between two steel rings compressed with oily Saharan sand. The rings are separated for the original claw to be removed, and the void is then filled with liquid silver. The sand reacts differently in each casting, and hence every claw is beautifully unique.

Excess silver is cut off and the claw is polished after which it is fitted with a ring to hold the chain. The necklace is polished blank and the claw is matted with a steel brush.

The necklace is crafted by hand by Johan Hovgaard Simonsen in Copenhagen, Denmark and ships by courier with our compliments within 8 weeks from confirmation of order.
