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?
These handmade copper necklaces are simple and elegant and make a wonderful gift to show your appreciation to that person who you feel has contributed so much to your child's growth and supported them in their time together. This one can be personalised with your own message, something from the class perhaps or something to remind the teacher of those children who have gifted it, after all we often club together to buy something special for a favourite teacher.
The writing is teeny tiny, only 1mm high, so your message is subtle and looks to just create a line down the centre of the necklace. This means the sentiment is subtle and can be read close up but is not obvious to everyone, perfect for a private message. This handmade necklace 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. Please keep your message to 28 characters long, including spaces. I can stamp letters and numbers, dots and '&', commas and apostrophes - we don't want to hand over something with an error to a teacher now do we? ;) The letters are all uppercase and are left black to create a line in the centre of the leaf. Please do get in touch if you have any more questions.
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'.
