Rhyolite tree necklace with beads, green and white, etched copper, 20 3/4" long

Item Description

This necklace features an etched pendant featuring a beautiful image of a tree 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 and rhyolite beads in green and white colors which are strung on high quality SoftFlex wire.

The clasp, hammered look rings, and copper beads are made of copper plated leadfree pewter, and the jump rings are made of enameled copper. The twisted rings, chain, crimp covers, and the wire are made of antiqued copper. The crimps are made of antiqued brass.

The necklace measures 20.75" long (53cm). 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.
