If I tell you one of my other passions is African Drumming, then it should be no surprise that one of the core instruments should turn up in my jewellery range at some point.
It's made from a sheet of sterling silver, pierced out by hand and gently domed to give something of the feel of the real thing (but not the sound, of course).
I generally make it as a brooch and with the pin set vertically down the middle as shown. That means that you can also loop a chain or cord round the top of the pin and wear it as a pendant.
If you prefer, I can put the pin horizontally at the top of the brooch. Same price.
Or, if you just want it as a pendant, I can replace the pin with a snake chain.
The brooch is approximately 5cm tall and 3.5cm wide and weighs about 7gm, so it's a nice solid piece but just under the weight where it would have to be hallmarked.
I mentioned my penchant for African Drumming so I might as well do a brazen bit of self promotion and tell you that I also run a drumming class and community rhythm circle. I won't go overboard with the details here, but a nifty little click will take you over to the Pennine Rumblers web site. We meet within a few hundred yards of M1 Jct 37, so dead easy to get to if you fancy a bash.
