Description

This is a beautiful cockatoo bird necklace, crafted by hand to create an owl talisman you’re sure to cherish.

The handmade cockatoo focal was electroformed on the back and edges in pure copper and given a hand applied dark patina. The bird is made from polymer clay with incredible painted detail, and is lightweight and comfortable to wear.

Closes with a lobster claw clasp with handmade loop closure instead of the annoying tiny metal tab they usually give you.

The necklace is approx. 18″L.

A unique and totally gorgeous big bird talisman piece you’ll treasure for years!

————————–
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,
