Final Fantasy X Tidus Pendant in Sterling Silver or Antique Bronze
This is a handmade pendant based on the one worn by Tidus from Final Fantasy X in your choice of .925 sterling silver or antique bronze. The pendant is 2 inches long plus the bail, 1.25 inches wide and 1.5mm thick. The bail opening is 5mm wide.
This design was created around a custom request for a Tidus pendant for a cosplayer. This is a fan made piece for those like myself who want to wear something of quality!
Ask any gamer that has played Final Fantasy X and they will know where the idea for these came from! I have played most of the games in the Final Fantasy series, and often get requests for pieces made based on the games. Well, your request is answered!
In Final Fantasy X, Tidus is a player for the Zanarkand Abes, an underwater sport of blitzball, and wears his blitzball team logo, based on a fish hook, as a pendant and earrings. The design is loosely based on the one from the game.
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.
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.
