Totally handmade, this unique Mother's Necklace is made of thick copper with a "sweat" soldered, hand-cut heart of sterling silver heart applied to the top portion of the locket and your names inside and close to your heart. I have attached the locket with a sterling silver (some pics show copper, but silver is stronger), heavy-gauge ring, and have suspended it from a pure copper, shiny 2-2.4mm ball chain 18" long, depending upon current stock. I even torched the chain a bit for a little added color! To add even more interest, I gave the top portion and the edges of the bottom piece a light hammered texture.

The photos show several different lockets, two with childrens' names and one with an anniversary message and date. The last pic shows a medical ID with a verdigris patina. Other dimensions are the same.

I actually made the original with an epilepsy plate for another customer in my Medical ID shop (experimenting with lettering and spacing before committing it to silver), then decided to do something different with it. I make several items with soldered medical crosses, and have always liked the lockets I've seen. I domed the front and back plates after carefully applying childrens' names. The front of the locket will be rustic, but I can polish it up a bit more if you prefer. The back will be flame-colored, and less smooth than the one shown because this shows an unstamped piece. Every one will be deliciously different! Or I can make it even more crusty, just how I like them! Maybe a verdigris patina on the copper? I can do it-see last pic for a similar item with this finish. My head is swimming with other possibilities (lock and key?)! Keep an eye out for more, or make a suggestion...many of my best and favorite sellers started with a customer's question..."Hey, I wonder if you could make...?"

Just remember that these are made individually, so the heart shapes and flame-colored copper pattern will vary from piece to piece.

This would also be a nice love message to someone...perhaps with a special date and a heart stamp or initials inside...?

♥Measurements: The discs measure 3/4" across, and the chain is 18" long.
♥I can make this chain any length. Just leave me a note in the Notes to Seller at checkout. I can also substitute a brown or black suede cord with sterling ends. Again, let me know!
♥See front page announcement in my main shop for current fabrication times, generally within 2 weeks.
♥International orders welcome!
♥Please leave names in the notes to seller at checkout. I can fit about 25 characters(this one has four names, 22 letters plus spaces), including spaces between names, but may get creative with placement if you give me a bit more. I'll convo you if there are any questions. These are placed in a spiral with a spiral stamp in the center of the name disc, but I can omit the stamp or use a tiny heart stamp if space allows.
♥Please see other mommy items in my shop (see link at bottom-a new window will open and you can see a selection of fonts as well.
♥For the med ID version of this with a soldered medical cross, search my shop. If you don't see it, let me know and I'll fix it.
Thanks for shopping with me at HillCountrySilver.etsy.com !
Have a great day!
=)Cindy
