This has been a popular piece, so now I make a few different versions! In this listing the paw is on the largest back plate I currently offer. It can be used as a keychain, a pet tag, or as a pendant. Check out my shop for the small pendant: www.etsy.com/shop/plyeffects

::::: How it’s made :::::
I start by cutting out the circle from a sheet of copper. I use a hammer to get the wood grain texture. The paw is carved in wax and individually cast in sterling silver.

I use liver of sulfur to blacken or ‘antique’ the entire piece. I buff some areas to reveal the copper and silver below. This piece has a lacquer finish that will prevent it from turning 'green', which happens when copper is exposed to air over time.

::::: The Specs:::::
Overall dimensions of the copper back plate are: 1 inch (25mm).

The small and large rings are split rings and easily detach from the copper piece. These rings are made of chrome plated steel and do not contain lead!

:::: Important Stuff ::::
*Free shipping is for First class mail service in the United States. This keychain will arrive in a gift box.
