This one-of-a-kind pendant combines a cancelled postage stamp from Madagascar and a selection of vintage sheet music on the reverse. The stamp depicts an illustration of a cockatiel in beautiful shades of blues and chocolates with a hint of green and of course those lively coral cheeks. I also added a single dangle of sterling silver and a freshwater pearl in peacock tones. Both pieces of paper ephemera are originals.

The vintage papers have been sandwiched between hand-cut glass using 100% lead-free, jewelry grade silver solder and the bezel is twisted sterling silver. In a final step, the pendant has been hand polished and buffed to a high sheen.

Measurements are 2 1/4 “ (57mm) in length including the ¼” bezel and the beaded dangle and is 1” (25mm) wide.

Comes ready to wear on an 22”, delicate sterling silver snake chain with a lobster claw clasp. Alternate length chains are available. Please see my policies section for available lengths and simply note in the “message to seller” section at checkout and I will switch out prior to sending.

It will arrive in a gift box with a handmade gift tag.

Unfortunately, the answer is No. Hand stamping is a deeper process than engraving. Although we use a minimum of 20 gauge metals, stamping on both sides won't give each side a clean look and can affect the look of the design. We can often make changes to our existing designs to fit additional wording. Simply contact us to go over the design options.
We leave our pieces in their organic state, sanding and buffing to bring out the natural beauty of the metals and finish with a museum-grade wax. Copper, Brass & Nickel will patina over time and can vary depending on use & exposure to body oils. Copper & Brass develops a rich, dark patina similar to circulated coins & Nickel will take on an opaque finish, similar to aged sterling silver. The naturally occurring, ageing process for all three metals has a lovely look & aesthetic and is not considered a defect but part of the beauty & appeal of the metals. If you prefer to keep your pieces bright & shiny as received, they can be polished with a treated jewelry pad: https://www.etsy.com/listing/217984474/pro-polish-pads-set-of-2-tarnis
