Item details

Handmade

Material

Copper, Silver

Totally handmade, this unique Medical ID Necklace is made of thick copper with a "sweat" soldered sterling silver medical cross applied to the top portion of the locket and your information tucked securely and easily accessible inside. I have attached the locket with a pure copper, heavy-gauge ring, and have suspended it from a pure copper, shiny 2mm ball chain.

This is a medical alert that you will LOVE wearing!

I actually made this epilepsy plate for another customer (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 pertinent medical information (This fits Medic Alert phone Number and ID number + condition perfectly!). The front of the locket will be rustic, but I can polish it up a bit more if you prefer. Or make it even more crusty, just how I like them! Maybe a verdigris patina on the copper? I can do it. Copper does some amazing color-changes with the application of enough heat, so no two will end up alike! Again, I can polish it up nice and shiny, leaving flame-induced pits and ridges, or keep it rustic. Please let me know which you prefer! Convo me if you'd like more photos of various options. The "more rustic" option is my favorite, with sterling silver scraps soldered to the back and a flame-finished patina that really lasts better than the shinier version.

NOTE: Some of the photos are older and show a copper ring at the top of the locket. I always use a sterling ring, as it is stronger. I also include a small maintenance kit and instructions to refresh text (if needed) are in my FAQ section.

♥Measurements: The discs measure 3/4" across, and the chain is rustic and your choice of length. I will make it rustic (as shown in pics) unless you say otherwise.
♥I can make this any length you want, but a longer chain might cost a bit more. 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!
♥This is also available in a sterling version with a copper medical star of life.
♥See front page announcement in my main shop for current fabrication times, always within 3 weeks, often less.
♥International orders welcome!
♥I also make these with a sterling heart for mommy necklaces here:

♥I also have a silver version with a copper star available to order.

Please leave information in the notes to seller at checkout. I'll convo you when I'm ready to begin stamping if there are any questions. The info I need:
♥TEXT desired (this may have to be changed up a bit to make everything fit),
♥Chain LENGTH,
♥RUSTIC vs SHINY finish.
Sometimes it takes several convos to get it all perfect! The more info you give me at checkout, the faster your order will be made. Your order will be delayed if you do not reply to my questions, so turn on notifications in the Etsy app!

Have a happy, healthy day!

An occasional soak in warm soapy water (yes, except for soft/porous stones like turquoise, they are safe for showering, too!) will keep your item looking new, as will daily wear, which inhibits tarnish. For orders $25+ I also include a small polishing cloth which can be used on dry pieces until it is completely black.

For shiny jewelry, I use a silver dip product for polishing. Just dip and then rinse in water. This will not remove black lettering.

If the text lightens (common inside of bracelets), fill in the letters with a Sharpie. Best hack ever! Wipe off the excess ink while it is still wet and sand off remaining residue to make the lettering pop again. I include sanding paper in every stamped bracelet order.
Exact wrist size is important for my bracelets! A 7-inch bracelet only works on a 6.75 inch wrist if it is chain. One with 1-inch beads that is 7" long may only fit a 5" wrist. So please send your exact wrist circumference if you are ordering a bracelet and want to love it a long time!
