The engraving looks nice... just too big for the pendant IMO.
Okay, thank you for that, appreciate your input as I'm flying by the seat of my pants here.

If the pendant were to be bigger would I then need to add more engraving to compensate for the negative space, or is there not enough negative space to begin with?

I think that jewelry engraving is quite different from gun engraving. If this were a scroll design you would want to balance the design with the "negative space" but it is not the case here.

In graphic design usually is a good practice to let the design "breathe"... you will never find texts or drawings touching the borders.

Please, do not take my comment badly, I liked very much your engraving. It is just an observation from my experience with graphics.

Perhaps some of our Master would like to contribute here with more qualified opinions.

All the very best!

a really clean execution. the illusion of depth just makes this pop ! jmho
Thanks Monk, I finished this up about 2am and grabbed a couple quick pictures, the other picture I snagged is the reverse, surface picked up the black case of the phone so all of the cuts are bright, quite a striking contrast.

Thanks for your encouragement.
