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 smashed it with a ten ton press. That flattens it and cracks the edges, and I am left with two pieces of copper sheet. After a good cleaning, I measure and cut my triangles. Then I punch and drill holes in two corners and file away the sharp edges, ending with a really good cleaning and polish.
To finish it, I made a dainty clasp and jump rings and attached a small copper chain and copper triangle to bring it all together.
This necklace measures approximately 18 inches. The individual triangles (there are 4) 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. I do my best to keep these imperfections to a minimum.
