Jellyfish Copper Etched Necklace

This jellyfish necklace is laser-cut from my design in copper sheet, and then etched with my original drawing, based on a sea nettle jellyfish. After cleaning, I apply a darkener in the grooves, then sand and seal the whole piece. The jelly measures about 4" long, and the brass chain is short, only about 14" with a toggle clasp, so that the jellyfish rests right on most people's collarbones. If you are worried about this length, let me know and I can make you a custom length chain.

Did you know 'Medusa' is a term for and life-stage of the jellyfish? They are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea. Jellyfish have roamed the oceans for 700 million years, making them the oldest multi-organ animal.

I have sealed the metal well, but the nature of copper is to tarnish and patina naturally over time. If this bothers you, you can sand it with a very fine sandpaper to bring it back up to the shine you desire. The pieces I personally wear tend to only darken on the back, so it doesn't bother me a bit. I also wear a small copper honeycomb necklace almost everyday and my skin has never turned even slightly green. However, everyone's skin reacts differently. If you are ever unsatisfied with the finish of your pendant, you can send it back to me and I will re-seal it for no charge.
