The pendants are 2 1/4 to 2/1/2 inches in diameter and 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick and are made from a variety of figured hardwoods. These pendants weigh about 1/8th of an ounce. The gloss finish on some of the pendants is obtained by using multiple coats of Superglue. The older pendants were attached to the cord by looping through an off center hole. The newer pendants are made using standard jewelry bails.
