Copper Necklace - Barnacle Bunches - Oxidized copper

★NOTE★This item is MADE TO ORDER and requires apx 3 weeks for production by hand in my studio. Please keep this in mind when ordering. I do have a variety of "Ready to Ship" items to choose from that you can see here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jamiespinello?section_id=14624658
All other items in my shop require production time before shipment.

100% made by me in my studio from scratch!
each piece is unique and made to order ( prototype pictured )
I make each item in my shop just for you upon purchase, please discuss customizations with me before purchasing.

Hand formed and hammered copper rings are layered and soldered together to form rosette / nest like shapes that resemble barnacles when assembled in groups. The piece is then oxidized and washed repeatedly until a pleasing combination of blacks, browns and deep oranges appear. I coat the whole necklace with a sealant to retain the oxidation effect on the surface of the copper. Copper oxidation is sealed for durability.

production time: currently 3 weeks for production before shipping via priority mail

Like many of my pieces, this necklace is prized for its versatility and durability. It can be worn shorter or longer and can be dressed up for a night at the museum or paired with a t-shirt and jeans. Every piece is made to order and will always be a one of kind. The construction and soldering ensures longevity and durability.

Frequently asked questions about JamieSpinello

MADE TO ORDER ITEMS: Most of my items require approximately 2-3 weeks for production by hand before shipment and are made to order. Production requirements for my pieces vary from design to design, because of different processes involved. The estimated time required before shipment can be found under the "shipping & polices" tab and on the invoice after purchase.

If an item states it is "READY TO SHIP", it will be shipped in 1-3 business days.

MULTIPLE ITEMS IN ORDER: Orders containing multiple items may take longer than the estimate. I encourage customers to contact me with questions if they are hoping to meet a deadline for gift giving or receipt. Please contact me with any concerns!
For all of my items it is a good idea to avoid harsh cleaning chemicals and or extended periods of submersion in water. Most metals oxidize and react to being exposed to acids in household cleaners, shampoos, and even face wash. To prolong the life of your jewelry, I suggest that you keep your pieces in a dry place (hanging up if a necklace) and to avoid over exposure to water and chemicals.
All of my work ships from my studio in Austin, Tx.
I use a wide array of processes for creating my work. All of my pieces are made in my studio. I forge, solder, fabricate, cast, carve, etch, and weld everything myself in my studio in Austin, Tx. I do not outsource, when you buy from me, you buy my original real hand made work made in my studio.
I do accept custom requests and personalized orders. Please shoot me a message first so we can get started. I am not able to accept all custom requests at all times, so please contact me first to find out my availability. Thank you.
I am happy to share the evolution of my work over the years. You can take a peek at some of the first designs I sold on Etsy by checking out my reviews which go all the way back to 2009: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JamieSpinello/reviews?page=100
