Announcement   Each Stainless Steel or Brass pendant & earrings is handcrafted from beginning to end in CANADA. We are Eco friendly craftspeople who put skill, time, and labour into etching our metal jewellery pieces from raw metal in our studio. All the stainless steel we use in our designs is salvaged/ reused/ upcycled from scrap on it's way to a smelter (except chains). We reuse our own steel, copper, brass and bronze scraps if we can, and send the rest to a metal recycler.

THANK YOU for supporting our handcraft instead of items mass produced in factories or made from manufactured components!

-If you would like to order multiples of our current stainless steel designs or a sold item, just ask, we may have more stock on hand. We also take custom orders for etching NEW stainless steel pendants (only on one side of the metal), you can provide art or we can design for you. Please contact us for rates and production times.

I sent a request for a custom order of this item and needed it shipped to arrive on graduation for a gift. Not only was the bracelet exactly what I asked for, the workmanship and quality exceeded my expectations. The customer service I received the entire process, which included an express post shipping refund was above and beyond. If I am ever in Winnipeg I would love to meet Jill to thank her in person. My first Etsy transaction was as amazing as the owners themselves.

About

Eco Friendly Metal Etching

We are Eco-friendly craftspeople who put skill, time, and labour into etching our metal jewellery pieces from raw metal in our studio. All the stainless steel used in our designs is salvaged/ reused/ upcycled from scrap on it's way to a smelter (except chains). In the studio we reuse our own scraps of steel, copper, brass and bronze as much as we can, and send the rest to a metal recycler.

We study Norse runes, spirals and designs that Viking invaders brought to the British Isles. Traditional Norse, Celtic, and other designs are reworked to hand etch into stunning Stainless Steel Pendants, and stainless steel, brass, and bronze earrings.
STAINLESS STEEL ETCHING
The stainless steel has been etched with an eco-friendly process which does not use any acid or other toxic chemicals. Salt water will naturally corrode stainless steel over time, the process is accelerated with a few volts of electricity. No toxic fumes, hydrogen and oxygen are released into the air. Galvanic or electrolytic etching was originally developed by print-makers in the mid 1800's as a non-toxic process for etching their printing plates.

A resist is applied to a steel sheet, this becomes the anode, and is immersed in salt water along with a cathode. After etching, each jewellery piece is sawed out by hand, filed, and sanded. A black patina is applied into the recesses to enhance the design.

Brass & Bronze - Also electro-etched, in a chemical solution that never wears out, so there is nothing to dispose of.

THANK YOU for supporting our handcraft!

Frequently asked questions

How do I care for this jewellery?

☀Stainless Steel - To protect the black patina and wax coating on the cord, remove all jewellery before swimming, showering, and similar activities.Long term exposure to moisture can affect jewellery.

☀Brass - Avoid exposure to hairspray, water &soap. Brass will darken over time and look more antique. Dab a tiny amount of vinegar on a cloth and wipe the brass to make it golden and shiny again. A jewellery polishing cloth also works well for polishing brass.

The item I wanted is sold out/or I need more than the quantity available, can I place an order?

If you would like to order multiples of our current stainless steel designs or a sold item, please send us a message. We may have more stock on hand, or can do a Made-To-Order. Production times for Made-to-Order vary, depending on our travel and craft show schedule.

Custom and personalized orders

-We do take custom orders for etching NEW stainless steel pendants, you can provide art or we can design for you. Please contact us to discuss rates and production times.

-Due to the complicated electro-etching process, only ONE side of the metal is etched. We cannot customize/etch or stamp on the back.

-Pendants can be made flat instead of curved, if you would like to take your piece to be engraved by a business in your area.

Can I have a Chain instead of a Cord/ Cord instead of a Chain?

- If a pendant is listed on a chain (a necklace), & you prefer the adjustable cotton cord; please contact us BEFORE purchase and we will make a listing for you at the lower price.

- CHAINS: Chain Upgrade listings are available to purchase, add to your cart along with one of our pendants. Chain cost - an additional $6-$8.30.
Standard lengths are 16, 18, 20, 21.5 inches, but we can make an odd length. Request for a longer length? Send us a message.

- CORDS: Adjustable sliding knot waxed cotton cord (maximum extension 29") can be made longer. Or if you prefer a shorter set length with a clasp 16", 18", etc... Tell us the length & we will add coil ends & spring ring clasp.

Is VAT tax included in the price & shipping fees?

NO. Since we are in Canada, we are not registered for VAT, and so this tax is not included in our prices. If any of our listings or shipping rates state "VAT included (where applicable)", this is because Etsy's programmers have recently added this to their web-shop platform. Unfortunately this is misleading and incorrect, but we are unable to remove it from our listings.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on this issue. Our shop has been open since 2009 and we have received very positive reviews from our European customers.
