Gandalf Self Determination Quote - Aluminum Handstamped Pendant


This pretty necklace consists of a shiny aluminum disc, hand stamped with Gandalf's quote ‘All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us’ from Tolkien's Fellowship of the Rings.  The quote has been  stamped in my script font, but I can substitute my Tiny Caps or Handwriting lowercase font if you prefer (the other fonts are unfortunately too large for this particular quote and style).

The 1 3/8" wide disc has been hand-dapped into a domed shape, tumbled for smoothness and buffed for shine.  It hangs from an 18" silver plated cable chain.  I can substitute a black leather cord, a black faux-leather cord, a silver-plated ball chain or a black steel wire necklace if you prefer - just leave me a note at checkout.  The cord and wire are approximately 17" long; the chains are 17" - 22" long, depending on what's in stock.  If you want a specific chain length (I can't alter the length of the cords), let me know, though the maximum length is 24".

I can also customize this style necklace to say whatever you'd like!  The limit for this style is 66 characters, (including spaces) if you use Script, Tiny Caps or Handwriting Lowercase fonts, 45 characters for my Standard, Handwriting Caps, Curly, Elegant, Typewriter Lowercase or Wonderland fonts, and 30 characters (no more than 9 across for the widest line) for my Calligraphy and Typewriter Caps fonts.

If you are unsure about whether your customization will work, please send me a note at and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.  I can also substitute a larger or smaller disc, or a different shape such as a square, rectangle, heart, etc.

Please note that because hand stamping is not a replacement for machine-engraving, your jewelry is not going to feature perfectly even, uniform text.  Variations and a bit of whimsy are to be expected; this is part of the charm of hand-stamped jewelry, as each piece is truly one of a kind and can never be duplicated exactly.
