This necklace is made from Alkeme with a delicate stainless steel chain, clasp and jump rings. The disc is 1/2" tall and 1/2" wide with a darkened impression.
Each piece is stamped by hand, one design at a time using steel stamps and hammered with a brass mallet. Variations in design depth and alignment are characteristics of this process. This is the charm of hand stamping, making each one unique! After stamping, I oxidize (darken) the impression, add texture around the border and shape the disc into a slight curve. I hand file the edges, buff and polish. I then attach the piece to a stainless steel chain and lobster clasp.
Why Alkeme? It has the look and feel of sterling silver but will not tarnish as quickly! It is very easy to care for. This metal is lead and nickle free.
Why stainless steel? It is hypo-allergenic and will not tarnish. It is strong and durable, made to last.
