Pendants by Miles
I create my own pendants Alaska one at a time , no duplicates. In most cases I find my own raw materials, rocks wood fossils and prepare cut them myself. Most of my findings I custom cast. Brass and bronze are from old barge propellers. Copper is from antique copper water pipes from when they were made of solid copper. Bails are soldered shut. I began making pendants in 1965. I have created over 10,000 in my lifetime.
