These were originally used on hand-cranked printing presses, each piece of type used in these necklaces were worn out ever so slightly by normal printing use.
It has been reproduced in jewelers grade silicon bronze, I then gently hand burnish it, clean it and and then polish so that it has the same age appropriate imperfections which add to the nostalgic value of each letter. Please note that my camera, with the extreme close ups, picks up tiny flaws that are not visible to the naked eye, however I feel that any imperfections are part of the vintage feel.
Each letter measures 3/4" long, 1/2" wide and .25" deep and is suspended from a 24" gunmetal chain which contrasts the piece nicely and is secured with a toggle clasp.
