Photo Pendant Engraving Project, Part 2

Here is part 2 in my 3 part series for a project I recently did!
I demonstrate how I actually can "draw on metal with a simple tool... and engraver pen!
I made the piece black before engraving it and it really makes the engraving stand out.

The Chinese characters I am engraving stand for the work "kenpo", which is the type of karate or martial art I am studying.
I became inspired by the symbols used in the different types of martial arts, and made a nice combination of my 2 passions!
Here are some other examples of my kenpo inspired jewelry...
The one on the left is a dragon... the one on the right is the same characters I'm engraving, only on this it is an epoxy inlay. Nice!

Stay tuned for part 3!
