Humphrey pur pendant damask - stainless steel star
Star pendant 25 mm made of folded Damascus steel
Damascus steels are said to have legendary properties. People speak of their unbelievable durability, films like 'Highlander' create an almost mystical flair about the 'folded' blades and even today one hears that, for example, a knife made of Damascus should be able to split nails without being damaged.
The starting material for the production of Damascus steel is iron with different contents of accompanying elements such as carbon, manganese, silicon, etc. . Damascus steel is folded, forged, folded again, forged, ...
This creates individual inner structures. Humphrey uses selected Damascus steels with appropriate patterns.
The result is an optical treat that impresses with its alternating dark and light lines. They are created by etching the surface, because this is where the different layers emerge. Each piece of jewelry is unique and extraordinary.
The pendant features a pattern that is vaguely reminiscent of wood grain. These structures go through and through and can be re-etched at any time. Each pattern is unique and cannot (!) be influenced. The pattern is what it is. All edges are softened and feel soft.
