It looks really cool! I also want to try to make a pendant with my own hands. As for me, such a piece of jewelry will be charged with my energy. I want to do for your boyfriend something similar to bike cross pendant. It perfectly complements his brutal look.

I know pendants are huge now so it's great to have this collection! I think the clay ones would be really fun to make!
