The charm for this necklace features a paper ivory bird on a muted aqua blue background. The back of the charm is completely soldered. The charm was antiqued with a black patina, then buffed to reveal the silver color underneath. I love how it adds a rustic touch to this unique piece!

The charm is 1 1/2" square and the chunky ball chain is 18" long.

The jewelry in photos 3 and 4 are a representation of what I will be listing over the next few days.

In making these glass charms, I used parchment papers that I stained, aged, and water colored. Some have been printed with copies of 18th century indentured servant letters. The heart and hand designs are hand cut by me. Paper punched designs include the crown, fleur de lis and bird. A few of the charms are embellished with small fragments of antique textiles.

All charms are made with lead-free solder and have been given a carnauba wax finish. Some of the charms and nickel plated ball chains have been treated to give a rustic, tarnished look. Chains can easily be snipped to a shorter length with household utility scissors or wire cutters.

Care: Do not immerse in water. If solder or chain oxidizes, buff with a soft cloth or very fine steel wool.

I have pottery shard charm necklaces in my other Etsy shop:

Most of the pottery shards were found on our property which was built on a 1930s home place. After a rain, I find these pieces of history in our garden.
