I love flowers, how they symbolize hope, growth and new beginnings. This original pendant is born of a floral doodle in my sketchbook. I hope you like it. Made from yellow brass sheet metal, this pendant has been cut to size, had its rough edges smoothed, and then was polished. The design was hand-drawn, and then it was gently placed into an acid bath which ate away the undesired portions. Once taken from the bath it was washed, antiqued to bring out the beauty revealed by its ordeal, a hole was drilled to allow it to be worn, and then it was polished. Hanging on a chain, all the other connections are handmade with yellow brass wire. Brass does, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the material. It does have a thin protective layer of wax to protect it, but expect the beautiful patina to gradually appear. The pendant measures at about 2 inches (not including the handmade connectors); it's width is about 1 1/2 inches. The necklace length is a about 19 1/2 inches, including the handmade clasp. From beginning to end, this item is handmade with love... with all the attention you deserve! This item comes with a FREE white gift box, for your gift-giving pleasure!
