Blue Patina Hammered Copper Necklace
Production Time: 1-3 days
These elegant tube necklaces have been painstakingly aged with a turquoise blue patina - a process that takes a week for each tube and creates an utterly unique and compelling collection of textures and colors. Each necklace and each batch is unique - shaped by humidity, exposure time, and the way that the patina sits on the metal. A bright sterling silver double rope chain contrasts the lovely blue of the patina. The undersides allow just a little bit of the darkened metal underneath to peek through.
This is a limited edition run. After the patina process, the tubes are sealed to slow the patination process. That said, patina is on-going, which means that your necklace will very slowly continue to change over its lifespan. Just as each necklace will have a unique patina when you receive it, each will also age slightly differently.
Copper with patina // Eco-friendly, recycled, and shower/pool friendly solid sterling silver chain
Recycled metal, in this case, is gold and silver that has been reclaimed from jewelry that is at the end of its useful life OR from metal that is left over from the silversmithing process (everything from tiny silver dust to excess wire). Recycled metals reduce the impact of mining while preserving the quality of your jewelry. Recycled metal does not mean that it is inferior in any way - it's not plated, a lower karat quality, or hollow. Exactly the same, just cleaner and more ethical.
