Go the Distance

For a distance runner, a marathon isn't just a sport. It's a commitment. A way of life, where simply completing the race is a triumph. This sophisticated pendant is a way for you to honor that passion for physical achievement.

Two silver-plated discs are suspended back to back from a smoky gray cord. For the larger one, a special process is used to transfer a black and white photographic image directly onto the metal. The smaller disk is printed with the number 26.2 (the length in miles of a marathon) OR 13.1 (a half-marathon). Both are then given a thin layer of resin, which protects the graphic while giving them a sense of visual depth. Nylon cord has sterling silver clasp. Handmade in New Mexico.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Artist Jeff Ryan spent 15 years as a master printer, creating limited edition works of fine art produced in collaboration with photo-conceptual artists.

But in 1998, Jeff and his wife Barbara Edelman (along with their daughter and collection of dogs) abandoned city life to establish themselves and their workshop on several dusty high desert acres in Santa Fe. Their goal is to create museum quality objects that celebrate everyday life - its traditions, milestones and poetry.

Barbara and Jeff continue to develop new creations that combine fine art techniques with everyday materials for everyday use.

Comments about TWO-PIECE MARATHON PENDANT NECKLACE:

I bought this for my friend who just ran her first marathon. I thought it looked pretty on the website, but was very disappointed in the quality, especially for the price. It looked like two little pieces of tin with a poor screen print on it. I ended up returning it and getting my friend something else. Another point: since most of the people wearing the necklace are women, they should put a woman runner on the pendant instead of a man. Just a suggestion.

Quality.. poor

Comments about TWO-PIECE MARATHON PENDANT NECKLACE:

The "chain" isn't really a chain at all. Bent and very cheap. The pendant itself was not as heavy as it should have been, but looked ok. I will need to purchase a suitable chain.

Service and delivery comments:

I purchased this as a gift and the box was cheap and boring. I also put in a special message to be printed and sent with the gift and the message was never included. Very disappointed in that!!!! The tiny box the necklace was put in, actually put crimps in the chain which we were unable to correct. I will have to go out and buy a new chain for it. Not likely to shop with Uncommon Goods again. This was suppose to be a special gift for a friend and I was extremely dissapointed.

      I was really looking forward to this because I just started running and I plan to do a half marathon in March 2013. I was expecting more for the price. I found the piece flimsy and cheap looking.

        Comments about TWO-PIECE MARATHON PENDANT NECKLACE:

        I bought this to commemorate my first marathon. I chose this one over many that I saw at expos because of the runner on it. It's unique and meaningful. I have had many compliments on it everytime I wear it.
        The only thing I dislike is that I have now done a half and if I wanted to add anything to it... I can't.

        Service and delivery comments:

        It got here when it was supposed to and in great condition. In fact, I loved the packaging.
