mitsuro pendant with square bail
The square bail on this pendant is a simple example of how manipulating a piece of Mitsuro after casting can open an even wider range of design possibilities. After casting the body of this piece in the traditional manner, the top was carefully cut away and a rectangular tube was added for the square box chain to pass through.
