Paw Print Cufflinks in Antique Bronze
This is a pair of handmade antique bronze cufflinks with a paw print on the top was created for those pet lovers out there who wanted to find something they could wear to show their love of the fuzzies! The paws are is 1cm high and 1cm wide cufflinks are a rigid curved bar that 1cm from the base of the charm. I make these to order, so take about a week to make them. So if you love your pups or kitties, these will be perfect to show your love! Also there is space on the back to engrave a name or date, and you can order the option in my engraving section. I also can make this in larger sizes upon request as needed. I carved this in green jewellers wax, along with a few other pieces I made for pet lovers.
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.
