How it's made:
Pure or fine precious silver is 99.9% pure, making it more desireable and more expensive that sterling silver. It starts as a clay that can be molded, stamped and textured in any way imagineable. I roll the clay and weigh it for a uniform size. No 2 pieces will ever be the same in shape but the weight will. It will be perfectly imperfect with raw edges and a rustic, old world feel with texture lines. I take the texture even furthur by using a variety of tools and techniques to give it a modern trashed look. I then let it dry, sand it to smoothness, and fire it in a kiln for 3 hours. Once fired, it is solid 99.9% pure silver and the finished size is approx 5/8" x 1 1/8" but each one will vary slightly. The bronze mask is hand cut from pure bronze and goes through an even longer firing time in the kiln seperately than the silver. It's filed and sanded and textured before being soldered to the fine silver backplate. I then wire brush it, file and sand it some more and when I'm happy with the texture and after I've hand stamped your personalization, I oxidize the piece to leave dark in the low areas and to highlight the high areas. Finally it goes in a tumbler for a final glimmering polish and to add extra strength. This piece is attached to a 2mm sterling silver ball chain that has also been oxidized and hand sanded in some areas for a rustic look. Long process, Yes. But sooooo worth it!!

This piece is already sold but yours will be made to order and as close to an exact replica as possible. Allowing for slight differences in the handcrafted process. ** Please read our shop policies before completing your purchase and to view current production times**
