About The Sprinting Big Horn Ram Sterling Silver Pendant

Sterling silver was tufa cast for this creature.  Molten silver was poured into a tufa stone two part mold, each side of which was hand carved to provide the image of the ram with embossed designs on the front and signature mark on the reverse.  The same process was utilized to create the pendants suspended from the ram's feet.  

A strip of hammered silver is soldered on the back and curved to form a graceful hooked bail, allowing the pendant to be suspended from a variety of chain and necklace styles.

This is a most happy ram.  The pendants dangling from his feet further enhance the depiction of his implied movement.
