        Traditional Craft: Making a Pendant

        Students at the jewelry studio at Berea College demonstrate how a copper pendant necklace is made. Jewelers use a handsaw to cut out the pattern from a stencil placed on a sheet of copper. After filing the edges, they stamp the copper with a design and shape the pendant with a mallet and dapping block. A buffing machine makes the pendant shiny, and a small torch is used to make a patina.
