Conversion bolo to pendant

This was a bolo with a broken clasp that was with a group I purchased for resale. Due to its size, I thought it would make a great pendant. Since I didn’t want to remove all the turquoise, my jeweler suggested this combination of hard soldering the hook to a SS disc, then soft soldering the disc to the bobo/pendant. I think this is great example of creative conversion with patina he applied and the hammering of the disc:


Wonderful job, @Bmpdvm ! And a lovely way to repurpose a bolo. I’ll bet it looks fantastic worn as a pendant.


@Bmpdvm Kudos to your jeweler! He/She did a fabulous job on the bolo conversion. It sure makes for a pretty pendant. Hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of wearing it.
