Cherry Blossom and Dragonfly Tsuba


Recommended Posts

Been working with this for a few weeks, my first attempt at a tsuba (Japanese sword guard).


Since it is a pendant, I made it about 1/4 the size of a full scale tsuba. Carved of shibuichi (25% silver, 75% copper) with a fine silver backing, Argentium silver jump ring and chain, 2 inches tall (5 cms).


Thanks for looking!
