Variation: Each piece is hand-crafted individually and will vary slightly in appearance. When ordering you will receive a replica of the original design using the same colour palette. Slight differences in the design and beading will occur due to the hand-made nature of copper metalwork. The photographs in the gallery show a number of versions of the design on multiple backgrounds to give the most true to life image.
Semi-precious gemstones: Chinese jade (grade A jadeite) and amazonite.
Metal: Solid copper wire with a patina finish polished to reveal the warm coppery tones beneath. The copper has been varnished with a brush by hand with a clear and tough gloss finish that is safe to wear against the skin. This reduces down the natural patina process.
Necklace Chain Variations:
(1) Antique copper plated curb chain and clasp.
(2) Antique brass plated cable trace chain and clasp.
(3) Antique copper plated cable trace chain and clasp.
Metal Alloy: Any metal alloy is nickel and lead free under the EU nickel directive REACH.
