OOAK Etched Copper Pawprints Choker - Fur Babies Collection
Quick Facts: The pendant measures at about 2 inches (including the handmade connector); it's width is a about 1 inch (the way that it hangs- the etched metal pendant itself measures 1.5 inches by 3/4 inch). The necklace length is approximately 15.5 inches, choker length, including the handmade clasp. The Story: Does your pet walk all over you? Do you feel like you have paw prints on your heart? If so, you might appreciate this one-of-a-kind etched paw prints choker, complete with a handmade wire copper heart connection! Made from copper sheet metal, this pendant has been cut to size, had its rough edges smoothed, and then it was polished. The design was hand-drawn before being 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 black cording, the clasp and pendant connector are handmade with 20g copper wire. Copper does, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the material. The pendant does have a thin protective layer of wax to protect it, but expect the beautiful patina to gradually appear. From beginning to end, this item is handmade with love... with all the attention you deserve! *Please note: the necklace you receive, though the same design as what is pictured, may have slight variations from the one you see in the photos. Each design is hand-rendered and the acid eats away at the copper edges differently each time. The wire work is done for each pendant/clasp/connection individually- no two are ever exactly alike! The type of black cording may also vary, depending upon what I have in stock. Each necklace sold is one-of-a-kind amazing and just as unique as its owner. :) 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!
