Reading a copy of The Road by Cormac McCarthy was my inspiration for my Carry The Fire necklace.

The Road follows the life-and-death struggle of a father and son to survive in a post-apocolyptic world and contains the theme of "carrying the fire". An except from the book reads:

"We’re going to be okay, arent we Papa?
Yes. We are.
And nothing bad is going to happen to us.
That’s right. Because we’re carrying the fire.
Yes. Because we’re carrying the fire."

Crafted from hand-beaten pure copper and set with fine silver and a 9ct gold rivet. Entirely handmade here at my workbench.

The Carry The Fire pendant is sawn by hand from a sheet of pure copper. Beaten, forged, and hammer-textured on my bench-block to age the metal. The Carry The Fire elements are punch-stamped each letter at a time from pieces of fine silver and flame-soldered to the copper with my jewellers torch.

The rivet at the base of the pendant is made from 9ct gold and hammered into place.

The bail loop is made from fine silver.

Proudly crafted by hand at the MaxShock jewellery workshop in England.

LEATHER NECKLACE

I provide one of my handmade black leather necklaces with the pendant. The leather is 3mm in diameter and is fitted with sterling silver ends and clasp.

NECKLACE LENGTH

I make the necklace 18 inches as standard.

NEED A CUSTOM LENGTH NECKLACE?

If you want a necklace length longer or shorter than my standard 18 inches, please just put a note in the comments box during the checkout and I will make the necklace whatever length you specify.
