Celebration Five Triangle Bunting Necklace
This copper necklace started its life as a pipe, delivering clean water to someones home. After the residents upgraded their kitchen, it was torn out and disguarded. Here's where I come in. I cut it open and pounded it flat. Then I measured and cut some small triangles. And then I punched holes in two corners and filed away the sharp edges, ending with a really good cleaning and polish.
For the brass triangles, I heated a broken drum cymbal until it was glowing red. When it cooled, I cut a portion of it into triangles. Same as the copper I punched holes and filled the sharp edges. Voila!
To finish it, I made a dainty s clasp and jump rings and attached a small copper chain and copper triangle to bring it all together.
It measures approximately 17 inches. The individual triangles (there are 5) measure less than 1/2 inch from top to bottom, and approximately 1/2 inch across.
This item comes in a Kraft gift box for safe shipping or thoughtful gift giving.
Due to the recycled nature of this metal, it may be slightly distressed looking. All of my items are almost completely handmade. There may be scratches or marks in the metal, or something may not line up exactly perfect. These imperfections are not to be seen as defects, but unique qualities of using recycled or reclaimed metals and buying handmade.
Keep jewelry in a safe place like a jewelry box or on a shelf when not wearing it. Try not to throw it in a drawer or purse, as that can cause jewelry to break or become tangled. Gemstones and shells can break or crack with force. Jewelry can be fragile. Please treat it with care.
