Description

MADE TO ORDER.
A playful and funky necklace for the animal lover, zookeeper, or quirky jewelry lover!
Image depicts a Two (or Three) Toed Sloth! Inspired by a sloth I was able to rescue in Peru, This guy is slowly reaching for his next claw hold.
Formed in sterling silver with a 1.5mm sterling silver rolo chain, hand cut by me.
And to make you feel better about purchasing, a portion of each piece goes to conservation efforts goes to help animals, fund research, and species survival efforts at both sanctuaries and zoos.
This necklace looks best on a short-mid length chain so it can rest near the collarbones and décolletage, but looks wonderful longer too.

Please note that the photographs can make the piece's patina appear darker than it is.
No two pieces are exactly the same due to hand cutting and hand applying a patina, but I strive to achieve consistency on each piece.


How it's Made:
First, I apply the pattern/image to the metal (sterling silver in 18 gauge thickness) that is hand drawn onto metal or tape.
I use my jeweler's saw and a very tiny saw blade (5/0) to carefully hand cut the image out and add any characteristics, such and fur or horns.
I sand and file the outside edge gently to remove the sharp edges and also the front and back of the piece to achieve a smooth canvas for the patina.
The piece is giving a good brushing with a brass brush for a hair-like finish.
The pendant then gets a bath in liver of sulfur, is washed off, and dried, then I use fine steel wool to remove some of the oxidation caused by the liver of sulfur.
After the first bath in the liver of sulfur (that smells as bad as the name suggests), I attach the sterling chain, and use handmade jump rings to attach it to the pendant.

Specifications:
Chain Length: 16"
*Please choose length when purchasing! Add a few days to processing time if chain requires lengthening.*
Pendant Size: 1.25" x 0.95"

    Item was custom made as I wanted a larger piece than was originally shown. The artist was absolutely wonderful to work with. She went out of her way to draw numerous sizes for me to choose from.
    The pendant is a beautiful work of art and a must for any animal lover.

*Custom Orders do not include rings which I make to your measurements. (Unless your measurements are either very large or very small. Rings smaller than 4 and larger than 14 are custom.) Custom Orders DO INCLUDE: Necklaces, bracelets, earrings that you and I "invent" through convos, alchemy, email or phone conversations.

Returns and exchange details
I try to provide pictures whose colors are as close to real life as possible. With that in mind, that is in comparison to my particular monitor. There may be slight color variations between what the picture shows and what you receive. Certain patinas can photograph slightly warmer or cooler than they are in real life. Also, due to the nature of natural stones they all differ on varying levels. Stones of the same composure are not always the same coloring. Please specify whether you would like one of the same in the picture or if you will accept something similar, but uniquely different, and equally beautiful.

Items damaged in transit will be refunded when I receive the damaged goods.

If your ring, necklace or bracelet does not fit you, please email me immediately upon receiving it in order to make arrangements for proper sizing.
