Twin Paw Print Pendant in Sterling Silver or Antique Bronze
This is a handmade twin paw pendant available in either .925 sterling silver or antique bronze that was created for those pet lovers out there who wanted to find something they could wear to show their love of the fuzzies! It is 2.5cm wide, 1.2cm wide and is flat on the back. It is super simple to wear all the time. Also there is space on the back to engrave a name or date, and you can order the option in my engraving section.
I carved these in green jewellers wax, along with a few other pieces I made for pet lovers. I also made rings, pendants, and earrings in this theme, so it's easy to make a whole set! So if you love your pups or kitties, these will be perfect to show your love!
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.
