Stumbleupon button

Posted By Owl and Cat on Jewellery

This necklace is made from glass seed beads in blues,greens,pearl and coral, and features a handmade pewter pendant. A mother-of -pearl bead is suspended from the disc. The simple two-strand necklace can be worn straight or twisted, and is 43.5cm long.



Each pewter piece has been individually made by hand (not cast) to my own design. A pattern is raised on a sheet of pewter, then the raised area is filled. The item is then mounted on a rigid base,chemically patinated, then polished.Modern pewter is lead-free and after patination has a shiny,almost reflective,finish.It does not blacken like silver and can be brightened, if necessary,with a smear of metal polish and a buffing with a soft cloth.
