NOTE!<<<This item is MADE TO ORDER and requires 2 weeks for production by hand in my studio. This item will not arrive in time for Xmas, so please keep that in mind when ordering. I do have a variety of "ready to ship" items to choose from that you can see here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/jamiespinello?section_id=14624658 >>>
100% made by me in my studio from scratch!
each piece is unique and made to order ( prototype pictured )
Hand formed and hammered copper rings are layered and soldered together to form rosette / nest like shapes that resemble barnacles when assembled in groups. The piece is then oxidized and washed repeatedly until a pleasing combination of blacks, browns and deep oranges appear. I coat the whole necklace with a sealant to retain the oxidation effect on the surface of the copper. Copper oxidation is sealed for durability.

This piece is 100% hand made by me chain and all in my home studio in Texas.
Like many of my pieces, this necklace is prized for its versatility and durability. It can be worn shorter or longer and can be dressed up for a night at the museum or paired with a t-shirt and jeans. Every piece is made to order and will always be a one of kind. The construction and soldering ensures longevity and durability and lacquer retains the finish and acts as a barrier between the piece and the skin.
I make bracelets, cuffs, earrings and rings too! Don't forget to check out my other designs!
