Simple Washington necklace on beaded chain or plain chain. We start with raw brass and etch simple heart and then hand finished. For this one we have added beaded chain to each side but you can also choose a simple cable chain.
You have the choice of two beautiful finishes.
Matte Silver Finish:
The etched piece is electroplated with 500 mils of sterling silver, a slight oxidation and a protective finish. Most silver plate is just 10 to 20 mils thick, making this at least 25 times thicker! This process is a nickel free process. The result is a gorgeous matte super durable silver finish. Take care of your piece just like any other silver jewelry you have. Keep it a cool dry airtight box, bag or the packaging it comes with. You can use a silver polishing cloth or sterling silver cleaner but all your really need is a clean soft cloth. The chain and lobster claw are also silver over brass.
Antique Brass Finish
After the piece is etched and cleaned up, we darken it with a brown black oxidizer but then remove almost all of it, leaving just enough oxidation to bring out the details of the design. We finish up by giving it a light lacquer to keep it looking beautiful. The chain and lobster call are also solid brass and hand oxidized.
This necklace measures 18" but it is adjustable as the lobster can fit in any link on the chain. If you would like it longer than 18" just let us know.
