Have to be honest here and say that I'm a little disappointed with this purchase. Although I know the pictures are enlarged so patrons can see what they're getting....I felt this item did not live up to the photos and the description of being "chunky". I thought it would be a lot more substantial with a larger clasp that would be easier to operate. And I thought the high price meant it would be more substantial. Nothing wrong with the craftsmanship....it's just smaller than what I thought I was getting. I have given it 5 stars, however, because I don't want to ruin anyone's Etsy rating and the owner was very responsive and kind in her communication.....and I will find the extension useful.

About

Age Old Techniques Make Heirloom Jewelry

Hi, my name is Christen Largent. Thanks for stopping by my shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/bddesigns

My work is an accumulation of years of study, experimentation, inspiration and the JOY of working with metal! All of my work is created using traditional metalsmithing techniques, commonly called fabrication. These are the same techniques that metalsmiths have been passing down from generation to generation for hundreds of years. It is a legacy of metalwork and I am very proud to be part of that history. I hope you enjoy viewing what I enjoyed creating! I add new pieces each week, so stop back often!

On the personal side, I am a wife (of 21 years) and a mother of two wonderful children that are still at home. They are the inspiration behind my Mother's line of jewelry and a source of joy and inspiration every day of my life. Everything I do, I do for my family and each piece of jewelry I make, I make as if it were for my own family...so you get the very best from me each time you order from me!

I live in the woods in Pennsylvania, after living 20 years in the woods in Ohio. The woods and nature in general is a part of my very soul, so a lot of what you see in my shop is nature-inspired as well! I learned about perennial gardening from my mother at an early age and my love of all things green and growing finds its' way into my work constantly! I feel that a lot of my designs grow organically out of that love of nature.

I feel very strongly about preserving the American craftsman legacy that made this country great, so I purchase from local craftspersons as a normal means to support that legacy. I also subscribe to the school of thought that anything made by a persons hands will always be infused with more creativity, love and durability than something made by a machine or a corporation, so I do my best to uphold that tradition! I hope you feel the same way and help keep America strong!
