Item details

Handmade item

Material

Copper

Dimensions

Necklace length: 18 Inches; Pendant height: 1.125 Inches; Pendant width: 1.125 Inches

Memorial Portrait etched copper inscribed memorial pendant on 18" ball chain. If you would like a different chain length at no additional cost, please indicate that in the buyer notes.

The beads I use are jasper and they vary in color. If you have a color preference, let me know, otherwise I will choose one at random.

I make all my jewelry one piece at a time, by hand. To permanently etch a photo into the copper, I print out the photo in black and white using a laser printer. I transfer the toner ink over to the metal by using a heat press, then I drop the piece into a homemade hydrochloric acid etchant. This will permanently etch the areas that do not contain ink. Then, if an inscription is requested, I repeat the entire process a second time for the back side. Once both sides are etched, I sand the piece and then add a dark patina to the recessed areas using a patina solution. The piece is then sanded once again, then polished, then finished with a light wax coating. I complete the necklace by wire wrapping a jasper bead on top with 18 gauge pure copper wire, then adding a ball chain.

The necklace comes with a standard ball chain clasp. I also offer a handmade hook and eye clasp option that's made from heavy gauge copper. Additionally, you may request texture to be added to the piece (see photos.)

The short answer: No. I don't mass produce and I source my materials from other small shops.

I am the smallest of small businesses in that Petri Designs is literally just me, in my basement at home, with one heat press and one printer. Everything that I sell is designed, printed, pressed, etched, cut, polished, and shipped by me, one piece at a time.

I source most of my materials from other small businesses, many of them here on Etsy. Since I am not a big corporation, I don't get any material discounts or shipping discounts like a mass producer would.

My pricing is determined by my cost of materials and labor. It's set as reasonably as I can while still making a small profit. Thank you for understanding!
