Copper tree necklace with green prehnite beads, etched metal, 21 inches long

Item Description

This necklace features an etched pendant featuring a beautiful image of a tree by artist Cynthia Thornton. 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 prehnite beads in green and black that measure approximately 5/16" in diameter (8mm).

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

The necklace measures 21" long (53mm). 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.
