Item details

Handmade item

Materials

Silver, Stone

Gemstone: Turquoise

Dimensions

Necklace length: 17 Inches; Pendant height: 1.25 Inches; Pendant width: 0.75 Inches

Made of melted textured silver with hand applied and torch fused balls of silver that surround a deep teal turquoise stone from the Kingman mine that I cut and cabbed myself. Pendant measures 1.25" tall by 0.75" across and hangs from a 17" sterling silver chain. All metals have been oxidized and hand brushed to highlight the textures and details.


Some people say you are not your mistakes. I don't quite believe this is true. I say you are your mistakes along with everything else. Now they might not completely define you but they are a part of what got you to where you are right this very moment and you should own them like every other part of you that's good or bad.

This piece started out entirely different. A smooth sheet of silver. A bit of design stamping. A few accent balls of silver. But I made a mistake and kept the torch on the piece too long and things started to go awry. After I had worked so hard to get the stamping right, so hard to place the 4 little accents balls of silver in just the right places the piece was melting before my very eyes. I turned the torch off and sat with it and my disappointment for a little while until a whole new vision appeared for this piece. I got to work melting dozens of tiny silver balls. I tried a new technique of fusing silver using these little balls placed all around the bezel and a whole new piece was born from my mistake.


Hand built with love and good intentions. You are here >>--> ♥

FAQs

Soldered jewelry with butterfly wings must be protected from moisture unless stated otherwise in the listing. Please wipe glass with a clean dry cloth. You may polish solder with a high quality carnauba wax polish.

Sterling Silver jewelry may be cleaned with a paste of baking soda and water. If there is stamping design or wording on the piece gently rub the baking soda paste lightly over these areas.
All jewelry comes in a gift box. If you want to send a gift to someone please add that address as the ship to address at checkout. I can include a message with the package if desired. Leave a note at checkout with the message you would like included.
I do accept wholesale orders here or on Etsy wholesale. If you are not on Etsy wholesale please send me a message with the list of items you were interested in and how many of each item and I will let you know if you meet my wholesale requirements.
I purchase all of my butterflies from conservatories or butterfly gardens that collect the butterflies after they have lived out their natural lives. I do not kill butterflies for use in my jewelry.
I make each chain I use and can definitely make a longer or shorter chain if you would like. Longer sterling silver chains will cost a bit extra. There is no charge for longer silver plated chains. Please leave a message at checkout if you needed a different length other than the length stated on the listing.
I make almost everything in my shop as they are ordered. Processing time varies and can take up to 2 weeks to ship your item depending on the amount of orders I have. I generally ship before the two weeks is up but sometimes need that little bit of extra time.

After you receive a shipping notification from me you should receive your package in 2-5 days for USA customers and in 2-6 weeks for all international customers. International customers may incur a customs charge upon arrival of your package in your country. If you are not willing to pay the customs charge or VAT tax please do not order.
I do try my best to accommodate you if you need something quickly. Please message me prior to ordering to see if it is possible for me to have this ready and shipped for you when you need it.
Please click on the shipping & polices tab above each listing for more information.
A lot of my items are made after you order. The photo is representative of the quality and style of product you will receive but since these items are handmade and some may use natural butterfly wings with their own unique pattern and coloring, they will differ slightly from the photos. If you would like to see your finished product that you will receive after you order, please let me know and I can send photos after your item is made.
The lead free solder that I use consists of an alloy of >90% tin,
4-5% copper and < 1% selenium. It is skin safe and is also commonly used in pewter jewelry and pewter tankards for drinking out of and also for plumbing water lines. If you have a skin sensitivity to any of the metals in the solder alloy, then I recommend that you not purchase my soldered pieces.
