When the Jaybird and I first put our heads together on building a pendant, the thing he said to me that struck me the most as we were talking and drawing, and which stayed with me long after we spoke, was that he said he wanted the pendant to hold a message of hope, he said then that what he believed the world needs most is hope.
Jordan is nothing if not a message of hope - and of love.
The Jordan Pendant is heavy - I built it that way for a reason. It will endure. Somehow it still wears -light- over the place where those we love most and who have gone on ahead, live now.
The Raven Works Rival Sons Jordan Pendant is made from a single, solid piece of die-struck brass. The piece is tough, it’s beautiful, it’s stout, weighing in at over a full ounce of solid brass. The wolf, moon, trees and sky which I originally drew in pencil and ink are now made of cloisonné glass and enamel inlay.
The Jordan Pendant measures two and one quarter inches by one and one quarter inches and is three sixteenths of an inch thick. A twenty-eight-inch, mocha-colored, rounded leather chord is included. The knots I tied are slipknots –they slide easily and hold firmly, making the adjustment to the wearers desired length both fast and simple.
Sometimes less is more. Beyond this not much needs to be said here.
If you know, then you know … and if you’re reading this, then we know you know.
The Jordan pendant itself is a simple piece - I made the first one for myself, because I was called to do so, because it was in my heart to do so. I initially thought this piece would be the first of a series of lyric based pendants and perhaps it in time it will. I offer it as I made it, modestly, with love, with reverence, and humility, in hopes that it finds a strong, beautiful, resonant home with you, as a touchstone, as a reminder… as a simple memorial to love eternal - one offered in the Spirit of the gift the Sons have given us in the prayer that is Jordan.
