This sweet necklace was made when I saw a duckling flap its wings in joy when it was reunited with its mother. This 3D image was created with the technique called chasing and repousse. The metal has been hammered from both sides to create the image you see. The process of repousse allows this piece to have so much depth without being very heavy. The lightweight quality of this piece makes it a pleasure to wear. 

Made of sterling silver with 24k gold keum boo  and enamel paint for the eye.

Measures 1 1/2″ tall including the bail by 1 1/8″ across. Its on an 18″ steel cord now and can be switched to a chain if desired.

Arrives to you in a special gift box.

  • Care Instructions

    Silver will naturally oxidize over time. I provide a dip and wipes that you can use on any jewelry I make. Commercial dips can be very harsh on surface treatments and porous stones. Try to avoid dipping any porous stones in the solution such as pearls, turquoise, variscites, opals, and jaspers. Q tips are great to get around the stones. If your piece has keum boo on it do not soak your piece in the jewelry dip. Usually a quick dip and immediate rinse in water with soap will clean your piece. Gold pieces can be shined and cleaned with my polishing wipes I provide and if you need to get behind a stone use hot soapy water and a soft toothbrush. If the piece is already oxidized and needs to be cleaned, hot soapy water or a soft cloth work well.
