The incredibly detailed little squirrel on this necklace was hand cast using a technique called sand casting. This casting technique is unique in that while the original form is left intact, the mold is destroyed and must be re-formed for each piece. This means that every piece cast will have subtle differences, making each piece one-of-a-kind. For a view into the process, check out the mini-tutorial I did on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/album.php?aid=276004&id=220039765456&ref=mf
The squirrel was cast from a vintage plastic button. He measures approximately 1/2 inch long by 1/2 inch wide. A cute little copper acorn charm dangles from a one inch long piece of chain. I gave the squirrel a black patina and then brushed it back to better highlight the detail. The necklace is 16 inches long and is finished with a sterling lobster claw.

***This pendant was made with 100% recycled/reclaimed metal.
