How It's Made: Anchor Pendant

At Black Matter, we love working closely with our customers to create unique jewellery that not only lasts a lifetime, but also leaves a legacy. With that in mind, we wanted to take you step-by-step through the intricate process of hand-crafting a recently created anchor pendant.

Benjamin was inspired to create this anchor by a traditional navy anchor.
