Nautical Star Necklace
This unique little charm features a nautical star. Once associated with the sea services of the United States Armed Forces, it now represents a symbol of protection, guidance, and good luck. Find your own direction with the guidance of this star.
This lovely little charm is slightly smaller than a dime and is strung on a sterling silver chain with a sterling silver clasp.
Process - The medium I use to create this charm is known as Metal Clay and it consists of recycled silver from photo negatives mixed in an organic binder. In this case I used a wax stamp to make an impression on the clay, then I fire in a kiln where the binder burns away and the piece that remains is .999 pure silver. I then oxidize (darken) it in order to bring out the texture, and polish the high points to create a nice contrast.
The item pictured is not the exact piece you will receive as I make these to order. Since they are special orders made especially for you, they will take roughly a week to ship.
Your purchase will arrive in a 100% recycled box w/ poly-fill wadding, ready to give as a gift for others or yourself ;-)
