A Cone Bell Amulet

January 21, 2010

Pendant or amulet, 2 1/4″ long, with two nesting pointed cones.  Smaller cone has been given a dimpled bur texture on the inside.  Forged from two triangles of 1/8″ mild steel plate, with black steel wire ring.  With only two of them (one very small), they are primarily decorative and hardly qualify as bells, but they do make a small clinking sound.

    What was the process you used to forge this? I’m a budding blacksmith.
