Hi my name is Susan Richards and I live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada.I am a self taught artist and have been creating copper and silver jewellery for the past three years, as well as felting balls and other items for my two dogs.I have worked with all sorts of different mediums in my life, as I am happiest when I am creating something. (With my two dogs and cat in my studio)LIVE UNIQUE.

Once Upon a... Necklace

This necklace is made from 20 gauge copper that has been cut into a rough circle, then handstamped with the words ONCE UPON A .... Sterling silver dots have been soldered onto the copper and then the whole piece has been hammered and oxidized to bring out the lettering and the texture. The necklace comes on a rubber cord that can be made any length you would like. It would also look really nice on a sterling chain, so I will include a nice silver jumpring, just in case that is how you want to wear it. The pendant measures 1 1/2" around or 4 cm around.This piece will come uniquely packaged in an upcycled wool bag.
