The image on this necklace represents the zodiac sign of CANCER.
This necklace is made using a vintage, German glass cabochon stone that has been painted with a golden illustration of the zodiac sign. I have adorned the zodiac stone with a rainbow moonstone and two shiny copper moons.
The chain has an extendable clasp so it can be worn from 16inches to 18inches. The chain is very pretty and catches the light. If you would need a longer chain length, please leave a note at checkout or email me immediately after purchase at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please read shop policies before purchase. Message me with any questions.
How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my standards of excellent quality. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece and is monitored during the process. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating. After they are all dry and finished, they are ready to be added to high quality, beautiful chains :)
