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. The verdigris treatment will range from green to turquoise, pale, dark, vibrant etc, all part of the distressed design.
Sheet Metal: Solid copper with a verdigris treatment that prematurely oxidises the metal, creating a textured and mottled green patina finish. Sealed with several layers of gloss varnish that is safe to wear on the skin. The finished piece has a raised textured surface.
Curved Metal Bar: Solid copper wire with a patina finish polished to reveal the warm coppery tones beneath. The copper has been sealed with a gloss varnish that is safe to wear against the skin.
Semi-Precious Gemstones:Jasper, fluorite, labradorite.
Clasp: Antique copper plated lobster clasp (any metal alloy is nickel and lead free under the EU nickel directive REACH).
