This steel necklace is distinctive in every way, from its strong architectural form to its angular hand crafted sterling silver chain. The outer portion of the steel focal has been fused with shakudo (alloy of copper and 24 karat gold) and the inner (sunken) portion has been laminated with shakudo and then distressed with chisels and burs. Truly a collectors item.
The handmade chain plus is designed so that the focal piece rests at the base of the neck.
width 3 1/4 inch, height 1 1/4 inch
chain is 13 inches, total diameter is 16 inches
While the pendant has been sealed for protection, it is possible (though unlikely) that steel can rust if exposed to moisture. Store the jewelry away from moisture and avoid submerging it in any liquids. Avoid contact with perfumes, sunscreens or perfumes. Occasionally rub a small amount of light oil into the surface.
