Silver crosses from Birka.

Post by Ibor »

I would like to present crosses-pendants that I made.
Modeled on finds from Birka, dated to the 9th century AD.
The stone is a soft sandstone, 800 trial silver, a crucible made of clay mixed with broken old crucibles, I use the same for casting bronze and brass ... only bigger.
I cast the silver disc to the desired thickness, I have broken the hole on the hanging loop and punched the patterns with punches.
Here's the effect.
P.S
I will post a few posts because in one I can add only three photos.
