I'm waiting to see the picture that Clone Emperor took of Jeremy Bulloch wearing the one he got on Saturday night.
How much for one of those beauties?

How did I miss this!
For all those who ask, yes, the artist Alexandra Haban still honours orders for Mandalore's Pendant. Please send me a private message for order details.
Earlier this year I had intended to present Jeremy Bulloch with one of these pendants at Jedi Con in Düsseldorf, Germany. But I ran into Daniel Logan in the lift first. Daniel was so excited about the pendant that I gave him the only one I had on me. I really had to.
Happy as I was to see young Boba Fett with the bounty, I still wanted to get one out to Jeremy. Anyone who has had the pleasure should know that Jeremy, the original Boba Fett, is about as wonderful a celebrity any fan could hope for. Celebrity or not, Jeremy is a genuine and sincere fellow you feel good doing nice things for.
Prior to Dragon*Con 2008, I shot Jeremy an e-mail and asked what finish he'd like on his pendant. (He chose the antique patina with no burnishing.) His booth at the celebrity signing tables had line outside the room. I forewent the line, and presented the piece at the 501st mixer;
Jeremy was happy for the gift and wore it not only for the remainder of the night, but again the following day for the Matters of the Force Costume contest. I was thrilled to hear that Daniel was seen wearing his as well.
Two down, one to go.
Both Alexandra and myself would love to see more photos of folk wearing their pendants. Thank you.

Jeremy just posted a nice acknowledgment on his personal web space, JeremeyBulloch.com;
I need to write Jeremy to let him know the gift should really be credited to Alexandra. I was just the courier.Apologies to Thomas Spanos for not showing the Mandalore Pendant that he so kindly gave me at Dragon*Con.
Hi, I would like to know the price for one pendant polished black. Thanks!
That's awesome. I love the inclusion of Maori culture into the design. I'd definately be interested in one of these.
I also stumbled across this thread and found these pendants amazing. So what do I decide to do? Order three of them! One for me, and my two best friends. I got a blackened polish, a polished patina (with tyme and wear), and a blackened only finish.
So here's our three pendants. Mine is the bottom one.
Here's my best friend Cannon.
Then just a few more with detail of my pendent.
Me and my friends all love these pendants! Thank you very much, Alex and Thomas!
To my shame I TOALLY forgot to drop by this thread to convey my thanks both to Alex and Thomas!
I too am THRILLED with the pendant - the quality and workmanship (workwomanship?) is astounding and worth far more than Alex is asking. I really am delighted and very grateful! A huge thanks from me!
As an aside - I am hyper allergic to having most metal near my skin - nickel, copper, steel, aluminum etc. I have to use silver or coat most stuff in nailpolish/wax etc...
Whatever way these are finished is perfect for me and Im very comfortably wearing this with no issues - Thank you!!!
Those are amazing. Could I possibly get a price on a polished blackened, to Canada? Thanks.
Congratualtions, I haven't posted on this forum in ages, but this thread was brought to my attention and it was enough to bring me back here.
I'm interested, PM sent.
How did I miss this thread? These are inspired! Could I possibly get a price on a polished blackened, to the UK please?
Since the beginning of this project we considered casting the pendant in siver might be cost prohibitive. Thanks to one recent client's interest though, Alexandra was able to produce one of Mandalore's Pendants in silver. Here is a preview of the piece, currently in route to the client;
And again against two bronze pieces with different finishes for comparison;
While this is the work of companion, I am vicariously excited for her and the stellar reception the piece has met with. We both appreciate those who have taken the tyme to share photos of themselves wearing their pendants. Thank you.
Those interested in acquiring this piece may either PM me for details, or contact Alexandra directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to mention that you are coming from The Dented Helmet, and your call sign in your lettre.
That is BEAUTIFUL! Really stunning work, but then I shouldnt expect anything else now Ive seen Alex's work first hand!
Ive even been bothering her about another project!
Still got mine. Best regards to you and Alex for still making this great piece available!
i don't even remember seeing this, but these are awesome!
Are they still available Thomas?
PM sent. If they're hopefully still available.
Wow How did I miss this. I would love one if they are still available. Sending PM now.
I had mine stolen last year sometime. Sent a pm long ago. I'll try again as I loved mine dearly!
I would love to get one aswell!
To clarify, this piece is still being offered.
Those interested in acquiring this piece may either PM me for details, or contact Alexandra--the artist making them--directly at email@example.com. Be sure to mention your The Dented Helmet name in your e-mail.

I have one of those too and I must say the contact with alexandra was first class, fast and very comfortable.
Anyone who thinks about getting one ... stop thinking and buy it! It´s more than worth it!!!
Thumbs up for Alex and Thomas as well!
Amazing work. PM sent.
Got mine today!
Alexandra at work, boring out a set of pendants for cords for wearing.
Good Morning, I will be bringing 4 hand-made castings of Mandalore's Pendant to Dragon*Con. Interested parties please find me at the convention.
Hey Alexandra, hey Thomas,
just a little firendly bump for you both: These pendants are awesome!!!
And to all here on TDH: If you can get one ... catch them they´re hot!
Thought I´d show off that my pendant is where it´s supposed to be...
Mine was $50 (shipping incl.)
If these are still up for grabs, ill take number 4. Patina, no polish
Yes this project is on going. If you do order, and are pleased with the pendant, please post an image to the Mandalore's Pendant Interest thread in the Sarlacc Pit.
This pendant is the work of my companion, Alexandra Haban.
Here is a copy of the information I send out on her behalf:

Each pendant will be hand finished and patina treated to accent the design.
Finished bronze castings of the piece (including
shipping and insurance in the US) will be a total of $50.00.
(International orders please contact the artist for a quote on shipping.
Silver is also an option. Because the price of the silver fluctuates it is necessary to contact the artist for a quote.)

PLEASE DO NOT SEND PAYMENT UNTIL ORDER IS CONFIRMED.
As a personal policy designed to protect the client and her reputation, Alex will not accept payment until she has the pendant finished and prepared for shipping. Because the pendants are cast individually orders may take 1-2 weeks to fulfill."
For reference, here are images describing various possible finishes included in each order;
From right to left;
1. Polished blackened
2. Polished patina (fresh)
3. Polished patina (aged--with tyme and wear)
4. Patinated, no polish
5. Blackened, no polish
Please visit Alex's new online gallery, ASISZERO.COM
I like the one on the left the most but they're both really good and I love how tribal designs have been incorporated into the pendant on the right.
Very cool and I'd buy one of each at some point and yeah how much are they?
Will the "blackened no polish" eventually wear through over time and have exposed bronze exposed? I wouldn't want that to happen or I'd order it that way.
Hell I'd Buy A Few, Take Postal Money Orders?
Polished blackened is the one I want, these are beautiful pieces
im interested in one of the pendants but i want a little more info. Please PM me on it.
Ironic Jon soooo was mine, when we forcibly moved last fall. I'm trying to replace mine as well. =(
I will be bringing a small stash of Mandalore's Pendants (+ 1 "Mandalorian Mercenary" styled pendant) on behalf of Alexandra Haban to CV. The pieces will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Interested parties will be sure to find me at the 501st Patch trade and Imperial Bash, or possible on the convention floor.
Pieces picked up in person are 50 US.
I will contact her directly to get one. Thank you. Great meeting you at CV!
Jamie, I only realized as I walked away for the day it was you. I am so sorry I spaced at that moment. Too much SW stimulation.

Hi there, just send a PM for one of this beauties if in time!
Got mine almost two years ago and love it. Might get another one.
Yes these are still being made, each piece is customized per order.
This is Thomas (The Clone Emperor.) Alexandra, the artist who made these pendants, asked me to make her introductory post. Alex will be responding to posts and order requests here, until her new member status is lifted and a new post in the Cargo Hold can be made for her to take orders properly.
The above are front and back images of Mandalore's Pendant and the Mandalorian Merc's Pendant that Alex made, now offered with gold plating.
The next post you see under this avatar should be from Alexandra herself.

Thomas (on Alexandra's behalf)
I would defiantly be interested in one of these beautifully crafted pendants.
If you are interested in the Mandolorian pendant project and would like more information regarding the pendants, please contact me at email@example.com or send a private message through the forum.
I would like to share with everyone the latest addition to available finishes: full enamel coating. Different colors are an option. I worked over the enamel coating to create a more worn, distressed look.
A few poeple contacted me and asked if they can order a Mandalore pendant even if they are not members of The Dented Helmet. The answer is yes, you can. Please send me a private message or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Here is the latest addition to the Facebook Mando Gallery
