Making: Fine silver pebble pendant

I have been meaning to make this little pendant forever, as a continuation of a necklace I made a long time ago. I used fine silver pellets and just hammered them. For the pendant I was intending to make a brass rivet to give it some personality, and it turned out ok (on one side, the other one not so much). I don’t have a lot of experience with brass so I underestimated how hard it gets so I struggled with it a bit, so I resolved to cut it cross-wise and hammer it over the edge of the drill hole, instead of trying to make it go to the sides uniformly. I have to tweak the process a little, but I like the rugged look of it anyway. And every pendant will be unique as the silver pellets all come out different from when the molten silver is poured in water.
