Kingdom Hearts Wayfinder Charm Pendant in Sterling Silver or Antique Bronze
This is a handmade wayfinder charm pendant based off the ones from the hit video game Kingdom Hearts, of which I'm a fan of. Made in either .925 sterling silver or antique bronze, the pendant measures 2.2cm long plus the loop and 2.2cm wide. The jump ring is a nice size for a chain or cord. I will also have these available in earrings soon!
The design was a custom request from a customer. Carved in wax, it is cute and perfect for any fan of the series!
A Wayfinder is a star-shaped lucky charm that is used to provide luck to travelers. It is usually woven from Thalassa Shells, with some token at the middle, but there have been several imitations made from other materials throughout the series. It is designed after the paopu fruit, which is said to tie friends together. In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, the bond that the charms represent is manifested physically as the Dimension Link system.
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.
