The Story: Celebrate the empowerment of women throughout their lives with this beautiful one-of-a-kind Abstract Etched Copper Triskelion Love Pendant. This beautiful necklace is a one-of-a-kind item; I couldn't make another exactly like it if I tried. It's original- just like you! When I featured GirlVentures, a nonprofit which works to empower young women I needed something to symbolize the strength of women, throughout their lives; I chose to use the Celtic Triple Spiral for their "Inspired Jewelry Designs". This pendant was cut from 20g copper sheet, shaped, and polished. The design was drawn by hand, before being immersed into a acid-bath for etching. Finally, I took it out, cleaned it once more, drilled the hole for hanging, antiqued the surface and gave it its last polish. Strung on black faux suede cording, all the connections are handmade with 20g copper wire. From beginning to end, this item is handmade with love... with all the attention you deserve! Copper does, of course, develop an attractive patina over time. 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 appear gradually. This item comes with a FREE white gift box for your gift-giving pleasure! As always, 10% of the profits from the sale of this item goes to support the current Featured Charity!
