Description: The Paper Wasp Pendant is a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry created by engraving and carving shibuichi. Shibuichi means "one-fourth" in Japanese and indicates the standard formulation of one part silver to four parts copper. Until the Meiji reforms (late 19th century), when swordsmiths began to make purely decorative objects instead of swords, shibuichi was used to ornament various fittings for katana.
The pendant depicts a detailed paper wasp. The back of the pendant backed with .999 fine silver. This pendant clearly shows Tom's experience making netsuke (small sculptural objects, or toggles, usually worn to suspend objects hung from the sash of the kimono).
The pendant measures approximately 1 1/3 inches in height and is approximately .8 inches across. It is accompanied by a 21 inch braided linen necklace with and elk antler closure.
