Introverts need pretty things too. (Even if no one sees them other than via Instagram.) Quote is from Sartre. ✰Necklace will ship within 7 business days. ✰✰✰✰✰✰ Aluminum square is very lightweight, 1 inch x 1 inch. The lettering will not be perfectly aligned, and the impressions will not be uniformly deep into the metal. There will be slight imperfections in the metal and some softened edges due to hammering. I prefer this aesthetic, and I think it makes the pieces far more interesting and gives them the handmade look and feel that makes buying from individual artists so much more fun than buying mass produced jewelry. ✰✰✰✰✰✰ Necklace is surgical steel, 18 inches long. Surgical steel looks great, is strong and does not readily corrode or tarnish. Closes with lobster clasp. With both aluminum and surgical steel, those who often have problems wearing other metals can wear these without adverse reaction.
