Tribal Fox Head Pendant in Antique Bronze
This is a handmade fox head pendant I created per request. Available in antique bronze, the pendant is 3.2cm wide and 3.5mm high. The bail opening is 6mm wide, large enough to pass a nice chain. The lines in the fox design are enamelled and can be made in a variety of colors. So if you love foxes, this will be perfect to show your passion!
I carved this and may other pieces in green jewellers wax, along with a few other pieces I made for animal lovers. This one was created for a friend based on his tattoo. His though was made in .925 sterling silver.
Bronze is an alloy that consists of a mixture of approximately 90% copper and 10% tin. Producing bronze is a less toxic process than producing brass as brass is a combination of copper and zinc, and the manufacturing process often produces zinc oxide which is toxic.
Because bronze contains copper, it can turn your skin green whether you have an allergy or not. Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. This chemical reaction can also be prevented by painting any part of the jewelry that comes in contact with your skin with clear nail polish or clear acrylic enamel.
