Description

This Sterling silver Magpies locket is one of my labours of love. Every part is handmade and etched with a intricate weave of pattern reminicient of Celtic knotwork on front, rear and interior. Sheet silver is hand cut using a jewellers piercing saw and formed in my home studio based in West Yorkshire. The hinge and clasp is hand cut and soldered using an oxygen and propane torch. When all the forming and soldering is done, the piece is oxidised and polished to reveal the stunning detail created by the etch. The clasp swirls gracefully at one side and is held in place with a three chain safety chain. This unusual, triangular locket is a true statement piece and stunning heirloom to pass down your family line (if you decide they deserve it!). Be prepared to catch many an admirer's breath every time you wear it.

locket diameter: approx 5cm
Chain length is a standard 18" but longer or shorter lengths can be specified upon purchase.
If you are waiting for payday, this piece is eligible for two or three part payment: please contact me to discuss this.
Fully hallmarked British silver

FAQ's
What is a patina?
A patina is basically a layer of oxidisation on the surface of the metal. Patinas have varying degrees of durability, and items with patinas should not be worn permanently if you wish to retain the finish for as long as possible. This is particularly pertinent for heat coloured copper items, as the patina can be fragile, (care instructions are included with all coloured copper items). On rare occasion, certain skin types are not well suited to coloured copper, causing a reaction with the patina due to the skin's PH and resulting in an untimely 'dulling of the piece'. if you wish to own a piece with a more durable patina, I would recommend either oxidised copper or heat coloured steel, which will last many years with more frequent wear. (please note that a patina IS NOT the same as plating, so will never have the same durability as a well plated metal)

Care of jewellery
As any jeweller will tell you, jewellery should be cared for appropriately: metalwork, although durable, is not indestructible! I do not recommend jewellery to be worn whilst bathing, working out, housecleaning or other activity which may result in the item being affected or damaged by harsh chemicals or rough surfaces. This is particularly important for pieces carrying a patina.

What metals/materials do you work in?
I work predominantly in sterling silver, copper, aluminium, brass and steel, but can produce works in bronze, gold, platinum and palladium upon request.

Will copper/copper alloyed jewellery stain my skin green?
Everybody's skin type is different, so some may experience some oxidisation from copper and copper alloyed items against the skin, particularly for closely worn items (cuffs and rings for example). Many people prefer to have copper jewellery left without any barrier, as they believe it has contributing health benefits via absorption through the skin. Therefore I do not use any kind of barrier on my pieces unless requested: If you would prefer to have a barrier (lacquer) applied to the inside of the piece to prevent marking of the skin, please let me know in the notes at checkout, and I will happily do this for you for you free of charge.


Do you take on commissions?
I welcome commissions, and I love a challenge!

Cuffs and rings: Please indicate your preferred size in the notes at checkout. Items that are purchased without this information given by the customer will be made to the standard size as indicated in the listing description.

(please contact me if you require a brass chain longer than 24") Standard length for silver chain is 16" or 18" (please indicate in notes, otherwise the most available length I have in stock will be supplied) For silver chain longer than 18", please contact me in the first instance.
