I've been extremely excited to add the newly designed Etched Menagerie Collection to my Etsy shop! I have been busy hand-crafting the first necklaces in the series. Each piece is one of a kind featuring a hand drawn image that has been carefully etched into copper. The pieces are aged and their unique patina creates and almost rainbow like effect. Even the findings are hand crafted individually for each piece. These are not mass produced and each piece carries the markings of the artist along with the tool marks that add to the handcrafted quality of the jewelry.

This Jaguar pendant features a hand drawn image inspired by the Woodcut block prints of the Victorian era. The image has been etched into a hand-cut copper shield. The pendant is strung on a high quality antiqued chain. The clasps were created specifically to compliment this piece. In this case the clasp is an etched tribal shield.

The pendant measures 1.5" x 1.4"
The chain measures: 18"

These are neat!  What sort of process is etching in copper?  Does it involve acid?

Yeah it is a chemical process that eats away layers of the copper
