This pendant was handcrafted from bronze metal clay and was textured its clay form with a hand drawn design before it was fired in the kiln to achieve its metal form. The bronze metal clay was paired with a kaleidoscope jasper that has been prong-set to create a one of a kind rustic design that is great to wear all year long. A 24 inch chain has been included. Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin so the metal will eventually tarnish as well as darken if the proper care is not taken. While I do use Renaissance Wax as a sealant to slow the process, no sealant is permanent. Therefore, it is my recommendation to keep your pendant sealed in the included anti-tarnish bag when not worn. I also include a polishing cloth with every order to allow you to keep your pendant looking as gorgeous as the day it arrived. All pendants are packaged in their own gift box.
