These handmade copper necklaces are simple and elegant and make a wonderful gift to someone who loves the great outdoors, or a life long learner to teacher who will like he sentiment that inspired the collection.
I created this jewellery collection with teachers in mind. It's such an important role in a child's life and our teachers spend so much time with our small people, they hold a powerful place in our hearts. Who remembers their favourite teacher, the one who inspired you, who lifted you, who taught you about more than just the curriculum but about life and how to navigate through the tricky times at school?At the same time it is not emblazoned with 'TEACHER' so it can be worn and appreciated often, not just in school. And hey it's not exclusive to teachers, it is also a beautiful necklace that looks great on anyone!
The leaf is copper and the chain is oxidised brass, the findings are silver plate that have been treated to go dark. The whole piece is blackened and then parts are polished back to let the gorgeous warm colour of copper shine through.
Each leaf is cut from a stencil taken from a real oak leaf and is folded, formed textured and coloured to give it an authentic feel and a eye-catching surface with a stunning variation from dark to bright and shiny. Each leaf is a little bit different, but the one pictured gives you a good idea of what to expect.
The leaf is approximately 5cm long x 3cm wide. This may vary slightly. The chain comes in various lengths. This necklace can be worn long or short and has beautiful texture and movement.
Oxidised jewellery doesn't need much maintenance but if the shiny copper dulls a quick rub with a silver cloth will keep it looking bright and shiny.
This comes in one of our matt grey boxes, hot foiled with THE JEWELLERY MAKERS logo in silver, with a card printed with the saying 'Mighty Oaks from Little Acorns Grow'.
