Copper acorn necklace with green rhyolite and glass beads, simple asymmetrical jewelry, etched copper, 20" long

Item Description

This necklace features an etched pendant featuring a beautiful image of an acorn from an antique book. The design is etched into solid copper sheet metal with ferric chloride, then given a patina, tumbled, hand polished, and sealed with a permanent clear lacquer. Etching is a process that has been used for centuries to create gorgeous designs in metal.

I've paired this etched piece with antiqued copper chain, faceted glass beads, and a single rhyolite bead.

The clasp and small copper beads are made of copper plated leadfree pewter, and the jump rings are made of enameled copper. The chain and the wire are made of antiqued copper.

The necklace measures 20" long (51cm). The pendant measures 1" long x 3/4" wide x 1/32" thick (25mm x 19mm x 1mm) and should give you years of enjoyment. If the lacquer ever wears off, it can be easily touched up with clear nail polish.
