The current Still I Rise pendant is the one shown in the main photograph.

After reading the wonderful "Still I Rise" poem by Maya Angelou I was inspired to make this pendant and necklace.

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

The first verse from the poem reads:

"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise."

The 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 Still I Rise 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 rivets on either side of the "I" in "Still I Rise" are made from 9ct gold and hammered into place.

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

I make the necklace 18 inches as standard.

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.
