Star Trek inspired Klingon Sword of Khaless necklace for those of us who want to feel empowered !
I saw these from 0.8 mm eco-silver* sterling sheet, which gives strength whilst keeping the necklace lightweight.
I file in a slight edge to the blade, I considered smoothing off the points, but given it's KLINGON inspired, I thought having very pointy parts would be useful should you be attending a meeting where no one listens :-) (Best to keep these away from balloons and small children though)
I've designed this so that you can wear it with the edge up towards your neck (careful not to open a vein if doing so!) or down, as though it's on Worf's wall
Because I saw them individually there will be slight variations to each necklace.
I prefer these with a high polish, but if you would prefer me to patinate or apply a satin finish, just ask and I'll 'make it so'.
If you want one without any pointy, stabby, slicey edge to it - I can do that too. Just instruct me in the 'message to seller' when you checkout.
This is a little larger than my studs, at 50mm in length and 15mm at the widest point. I particularly like it hanging in this orientation, but if you would prefer one made as a pendant, please send me a conversation and we can discuss exactly what it your requirements are, before I 'make it so'.
Please also bear in mind that I make these individually; sawing them out by hand, so each Bat'leth will be unique and vary slightly, I use 16 and 18"chains for these, which meant means your necklace will be 17.25 or 19.5 inches - with a possible slight variation as I'm sawing the Bat'leths by hand, individually. Make your choice at check out.

Sterling Silver will eventually oxidise or tarnish. It's a natural process that can be slowed down by regular wear and by keeping unworn items away from the atmosphere. If you leave your jewellery out on display, this oxidisation will be faster. You can polish up your items, with a soft cloth, some silver polish, or a buffing cloth such as Town Talk, which is readily available from any high street jewellers in the UK
Fine silver is 99.9% silver, and because of this the tarnish rate is much, much slower. Again, a buff should do the job for polishing it back up. If I have patinated your silver already, be gentle when buffing!
Each piece should stand up to regular wear, but , as with all jewellery, please remove it before washing, using chemicals or applying perfume etc
Apply body lotion and perfume a few minutes before putting on your jewellery to help slow down tarnish
The sterling silver used in these items was sold to me by my bullion dealer as certified recycled.
The gemstones I use have been sold to me by reputable dealers as untreated (unless stated specifically in the listing). They are a natural, organic creation from the earth and each one will be slightly different. You can see examples of this on my Facebook page.
I select the stones that I think go together best for each project, hence my comments that each item is individual.
