Handmade jewelry made from recycled metals | Greenville, SC
  • MENDED HEART Necklace (Recycled Copper)



    This custom design was originally created by the request of a special lady who has done an amazing job of raising a hero of her own, dispite all the challenges and obstacles that their family had to face.  I am always inspired by people like this.  It was also hard to believe how many others have been affected by CHD, including friends of mine, I had no idea.

    Help raise HEART AWARENESS and show your support for those born with CHD (Congenital Heart Defect), #1 birth defect affecting 1 out of every 100 born.  For the "angels" and heros" that have undergone this struggle, let it be an ongoing inspiration to all of us...

    (Limited hearts available)
    Made from 100% recycled copper, these pendants were cut, etched down the middle, drilled (12 times each), and sanded, all by hand to ensure attention to every detail.  Each of the pieces were purposefully oxidized to show the antique colorations you see in the pictures provided, then are carefully laced/sewn up with recycled copper electrical wire.  To protect the finished product and patina of the piece, each has been given a few coats of Renaissance Wax (used by professionals in museums worldwide).  It gives a durable, transparent, and lustrous protective coating that will not discolor.
    Lovingly hung on a 16-17 inch chain with lobster clasp closure for easy fastening.

    My honey does electrical work, and I've enjoyed recycling some of the "random-ness" that he brings home for me.

    This piece comes lovingly packaged in a handstamped 100% recycled kraft box for smooth travels and easy gifting.
