Copper mermaid necklace with multicolor freshwater baroque pearls, etched metal, 19 3/4 inches long

Item Description

This necklace features an etched pendant featuring a beautiful image of a mermaid drawn by artist Cynthia Thornton from Green Girl Studios. 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 gorgeous multicolor iridescent freshwater baroque pearls.

The clasp, and small copper beads are made of copper plated leadfree pewter, the crimp covers and beadcaps are antiqued copper, and the crimps are antiqued brass.

The necklace measures 19.75" long (50.5mm). It is strung on SoftFlex wire, which is supple and strong.

The pendant measures 1 1/8" in diameter x 1/32" thick (28mm 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. The baroque pearl beads average about 3/4" long (20mm).
