Barley Stalk and Amber Necklace


1 in stock

This is a real stalk of barley that I've electroformed in pure copper. The patina is rustic and organic, and the piece has been clear coated to protect the finish.

I've added tiny Baltic amber beads to look like drops of beer wire wrapped along the stalk.

The plating on the piece is thick so the stalk does not easily bend. It is sturdy enough for daily wear.

Comes on an 18"L copper chain. It wears like a bar necklace, sideways.

If you know any home brewers, beer aficionados or even organic farmers, this piece makes a great gift!

NOTE: If you'd like a different cord option, message me in checkout.
Electroforming is a unique process of combining chemistry and alchemy to take natural objects and plate them in copper. It can take up to three days to create a single piece. Each piece has been given a dark patina and good old fashioned polishing with steel wool. My work has been clear coated to halt the oxidation process and to keep your skin from turning green. Over time, the copper on your piece may need a coating of clear nail polish to continue to keep the oxidation to a minimum.

Each piece is made by me in my studio right here in northwest Indiana, and is one-of-a-kind. The stones I use spend time under moonlight for cleansing before I work with them. I choose my materials very carefully for quality and provenance, including cruelty-free and eco-harvesting. All purchases come carefully packaged and ready for gift-giving!

Sincerely, your Stone Sister,
